Watched fishing boats coming home with there catches...really friendly. Accessible to wheelchair. Parking limited if a busy day. Also some of the surrounding streets a little small...so patience and courtesy needed.

Such a beautiful little bit of history. Good for a walk or a picnic. You can get fresh fish or toasties. Watch the boats and the sea.
