Market day is Sunday, and is fascinating- fresh fish, ginormous vegetables and local produce. There's quite a lot of free parking in the surrounding streets, and plenty of cafes and restaurants so that you can make a day of it.

Beautiful harbour to whittle away a couple of hours, enjoying the atmosphere & grabbing lunch or dinner at the many restaurants overlooking the boats. Worth the trip to visit.

Very busy during the day with market stalls,boat trips and an amazing array of restaurants overlooking this stunning bay! In the evening when all the bus trips full of tourists depart it quietens down and has lots of lovely restaurants from which to choose dinner!
