A delightful spot to take in some sea air, and sunshine. Lots of places to stop for coffee, ices and snacks. Some top quality shop too.

Lovely feel about the place would definitely... More

Lighthouse, only used as a local landmark and is the place to ask to be dropped off if you want to be near the many excellent restaurants
