It is nice to take an afternoon walk in the area, enjoying the sea breeze with clean unpolluted air. Recommended for family quality time.

We visited the little harbor on a sunny Sunday morning. We enjoyed walking down the pier along the fishing boats. Souvenirs shops around and restaurants. All the stalls from the fish markets are very tempting with sea urchins, lobster, salmon, crabs...difficult to resist!

Quaint place with a lot of seafood restaurant to choose from. The walk along the marina was pleasant. There were gift shops to look around and fresh and frozen seafood shops that are most willing to pack them for you ready for transport.

A well-restored marina and functioning wharf. It's a great place to explore and grab a bite to eat. Buy some seafood fresh off the boat after lunch.

Hi There Yes they do, there's quite a few stores on the wharf so shop around first. If you're there on a Saturday or Sunday try a trip to London Heritage Farm for their Afternoon Tea ... it's a wonderful experience
