Great views of the harbour and town, make sure you walk along the harbour wall for views across Torbay.

“Always something to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Always something to see, be it fishing boats, small ferry boats or small cruise boats.
The new harbour area looks great.
Fish and chip shops everywhere, also Sam Widges shop is a feast to the eyes.
The art gallery is also worth a visit, artists can sometimes be seen painting at the side of the harbour.
Lovely selection of shops too.
