Nice place to have a wander around and soak up the local atmosphere. There are some old fashioned punishments, such as stocks and a ducking stool - the first one I had ever seen on my travels. Local taxis congregate here.

There is a bike and scooter rental in the dockyard. We took the bus to the south beaches. There is a fee to enter the beach that is within walking distance of the port and it is a very small beach and not anything like... More
