Although this is still a small working harbour with boats brining fish in daily you will also find converted beach it's selling crafts, food. Also a large wet fish outlet and fish and chip takeout and restaurants

If you love Oysters this is the place to come. Lots of restaurants along the harbour selling oysters and other sea fish. Amazing to see how many oyster shells are on the beach

So much to see here and eat. Oysters everywhere plus loads of other types of sea food. The small market is fun too.

We had a lovely time. Lots of craft shops and lunch places in the harbour area. Don't forget to buy some fresh fish and seafood whilst you're there to take home. We did both! Excellent oysters!

Yes it is, I have seen many people visiting with their dog. Although I do not know if you can allow your dog off the lead for a swim.
