We went to a beautiful restaurant overlooking the yachts. It was wonderful view. The food was fresh and delicious. I think the restaurant was Cloggers. The shops were high end and we enjoyed walking around and going into galleries.

The Marina is absolutely perfect. The stores, the bakery, the boutique hotels. It is all very Victorian. Worth the drive from St. John´s.

This was one of our stops on our island tour.Wished we had more time to explore all the buildings and shops.There are great views of yachts and sailboats.You can see why this would be a great place to hide from other ships or bad weather.

If you’re interested in history, do visit Nelson’s Dockyard. It’s interesting, but it will not take long to see even if you spend time in the small museum. Bring water!
