Great place to visit especially if you like boats as the sunseeker factory is based here so you will be able to see some fantastic private boats worth millions.

Very disappointed in harbour area, limited parking, filled with cafes, pubs & takeaways, not what we had hoped for, no quaint shops or local shops to look around, we did stumble across the RNLI museum which was very intresting, and all funds going to support a very good cause.

Lovely location plenty to see at the harbour, surprisingly clean for a harbour. Done a fair bit of fishing of the Jetty without much luck but sitting there for a few hours in the sun was lovely.
