The Harbour is quiet nice for a Sunday afternoon stroll when the weather is fine. There is a nice sea food stall if you fancy a bite to eat and a lovely shell shop that has been there for many a year.

We stayed in a hotel looking over the Harbour and each night we sat watching the boats as the weather in September was good The sea food was very good from the stalls near the Harbour

Saw this at high tide, low tide, and in between, as the hotel was directly opposite. Was not impressed with the expensive wooden pole sculpture commissioned by Yoko Ono., and the area was typical of quiet out of season area, and a long uphill walk to the town.

Great place to take the children. There is a water fountain that the children play in and can run around and go mad. The Royal George public house is situated next door and serves food and beverages. You have to go and try it for yourself......
