  • Lovely area between the railway line and sea full of pubs, cafes, the boatyard and a small sandy beach. Nice for a stroll and some refreshments.

  • A good way to spend the day and lots of great choices of pubs, I recommend Ye Olde Smack. They have great choice of fresh seafood available near by.
