Awesome and historic. Stroll or eat in one of the restaurants overlooking the docks (as we did). Beautiful pictures with the boats docked.

Walking along from the town centre to the with and the docks is a beautiful scene and you can go along to the long walk or to Mutton island. Gorgeous views of the ocean.

very beautiful colorful houses along the docks. Swans swimming in water, people walking their dogs. It was a calming beautiful place to walk along side.
