So worth the visit to this wonderful seaside village. I spent 2 nights and 3 days there end of Sept 2016 and it was perfect. We had one day of overcast but the rest was just perfect! Sunny and cool. Picturesque village

We stopped here for a short break and to take in the peaceful beauty of this tiny fishing village. The harbour is picturesque and in afternoon light created a very peaceful and tranquil scene. Well worth making the effort to see it.
