Not so pleasant when its raining but gorgeous when the sun is out. A good selection of bars and restaurants/hotels. Central for most things, the main town only a 10 minute walk away. Definitely worth a visit.

A new area still being developed not too far from the town centre. The buildings are tastefully done and there are hotels, bars and restaurants all along the waterfront as well as a vast selection of boats moored in the harbour.

Parking located nearby. The area was clean and modern. A lot to see although you couldn't let your kids run around as there isn't much between them and the water. A lot of nice bars and resteraunts along the waterfront. Not very near the town...More

The waterfront is hidden from view by a wall of brick and concrete and with so much potential the planners could have done a better job. Oh well that's another story.Once on the quay side there is much to admire, including the Old Custom House...More
