  • Even though the weather wasn't 100%, there were plenty of people around and many surfing. Nice area to walk & the sea itself turbulent & magnificent.  more »
  • Great beach for a walk when the tide is out. We walked from the village to the far end by the bridge and back again, around an hour in total.  more »
  • It was lovely indeed. I was in a nice boutique & made a purchase. Staff member very pleasant at the Woolen Mills. We had a meal at Kenny's bar & Restaurant, 5 stars I must say & reasonably priced too. We really enjoyed our visit.
  • Surfers paradise, rough tide dashing against massive constructed boulder seafront wall. Plenty of convenient good facilities for visitors, including clean public toilets at the beach front. The town itself is lovely, full of quaint and quirky shops, restaurants and galleries. But extremely busy with humans, from everywhere, for the Covid times we are battling with right now!
