What a great area, full of eateries and marina, sea views. We thought of Sir Francis Drake leaving this harbour to attack the Spanish Armada and Captain Cook on his voyage to discover Australia. Such a historic and important port. Loved wandering around.

Not a bad place to eat, drink and while away some time. Traffic + parking a big issue. Take a boat cruise. Try a Captain Jasper's fast food delight.
