This village is looking a little dated but they do have live shows and you can have a laugh. You will also get a free drink of punch if the boat is not working.

Although there are buses we walked to the village, a completely unassuming walk through the country and then we hit a fantasy land - it looked like a disney scene. Excellent fun, good amenities and would recommend a visit. Be careful if you're unsteady on your legs as quite steep

We walked from our hotel the Seabank taking about 25 minutes . Set in a pretty bay with stunning views . The staff work hard and Olive Oil very welcoming , the highlight of the visit was the speedboat ride around the bay. A great way to spend a couple of hours .

A good experience for half an hour or so, other than that it is expensive for what it is, and the place could do with updating.
