all life is here

Great place to spend a few hours. Lots of life, great seafood stalls and a good place to people watch, especially the children in the water spout area.

We were lucky to have a room overlooking the harbour for the weekend, a very quaint harbour situated next to an equally pretty town with a couple of hidden treasures, such as a beatiful small church hidden behind the main shopping street and a winding, cobbled narrow street leading down the hill to the harbour area.

Nice to visit and see all the boats. Not too many fishing ones these days, but still several places selling fresh fish off the quayside. Several pubs and restaurants for all price ranges.

Harbor area is fairly grim. See that is being renovated, hope this is so. Sad to see. Building that has "Tourist information across the roof is locked shut. Not very welcoming.

This is a well presented little harbour with a few fishing and pleasure vessels but notably no pleasure trips or other commercial work going on. If the pier and surrounds were renovated and developed it would be perfect. I understand there are plans afoot to do some significant development so hopefully this will bring some life back into the port.

The area was quite dirty and had litter about there had been either a very big rave there recently or it had not been cleaned in quite a while beer spills and beer cans where evident fish waste was lying about making any sea gulls very aggresive

i like the harbour and what you can see and do and enjoy. Pubs, restuarants, sea events and sunny sands beach. I like to see the way things are changing there, they say change is exciting.
