Beautiful by day harbour and pretty cottages, all you would expect but come evening time- drunks swearing, smoking drugs abusive behavior, not a place to take families. Shame on Cornwall Council by allowing these types to overrun such a lovely place.

A great place to watch the world pass by. Relaxing and therapeutic. Lots of friendly, local characters to meet and talk to. Lots of things to explore and great to see the living history, boats and dramatic setting.
