Came here in August for the folk festival and decided to come back for a weekend. Lovely place! Fantastic walks along the front. Tried one of the micro pubs too. So much choice for places to eat and drink.

Great bay, great views. loveley soft golden sand, nice cafe on the pier where you can sit and relax surrounded by the sea, you can see the many beach huts, people on the sand and the boats in the little harbour areas. Great place to relax.
