A nice section of bars and restaurants. Live music at the blue anchor. The Lusty Wench is a great place to eat, but make sure you book

Always something to see and do ( really liked the "Fishstock" festival ) yet a very laid back atmosphere for day and night. The real heart of town and a magnet to visitors.

A picturesque harbour surrounded by bars and restaurants. by day the harbour is busy with day trippers. Crabbing is a favourite pastime, and local shops sell the basic equipment.

A lovely little fishing harbour surrounded by lots of shops and many restaurants. Yes it's touristy and busy but it still retains bags and bags of charm.

Although the town was full of tourists, there was still a working vibrancy about it and the local people seemed genuinely keen to make this one welcome!

the gardens alongside the harbour are lovely. plenty of seats. everywhere clean and tidy. lots to sit and look at. a lovely relaxing harbour one side and yet all the hustle and bustle of a working harbour the other side. it can please everybody.

The only thing this place has going for it is the views,the shops were all very much the same and unless you like fish and chips your out of luck if you fancy something different to eat.very much a place for the elderly
