We had a walk along the beach and then went to the Maritime Centre for a cup of tea. Really reasonably priced, nice café area. There is also a gift shop and toilets and a museum, which there is a small charge for

Clean and presentable with a reasonable selection of salads and cooked food. Like their bacon sandwiches. The cakes and scones are always delicious. Lovely setting looking over the bay. Car park behind and a nice flat walk around the bay.
