Lovely to walk on the rocks, but don't be silly if the sea is rough keep off, people have been washed away. The shop is a lovely place... More

What a beautiful place! Made for epic photos. We spent the afternoon there taking pictures, having tea, visiting the lobster pots, and visiting the gift shops in town.
