Whilst this has been heavily refurbished and lacks a certain historic charm, it is still a lovely place to walk around in the sun or of an evening. the fact it is free is also a bonus. well worth a visit.

What a stunning place! Walking around the castle walls is like stepping back into time. The over all ambience and views are just amazing. Perfect place to have a stroll and enjoy the sun set.

Free to enter and great views of the coast, the town and the sea. Quite a few steps but very well maintained paths. Short walk from town centre.
