Not just about fishing! There's also lots interesting information, images, films and objects relating to the history of the beach, the swimming club and the Pier. It's free and definitely worth taking a break from the beach to have look!

This is a free attraction and is worth a stop. The old signs and the old equipment were quite interesting and there were no crowds.
