Although busy it was a great harbour town with lots of places to eat and drink and watch the world go by. Lots of good independent shops. Nice relaxing place with friendly people with no hassle

Nice harbour which is quite calm so makes for nice 'mirror' photos. Surrounded by quaint shops this does make for a very picturesque setting. 2318
