The village is lovely with such a variety of houses and cottages, There are some shops, a stream, pubs and a hotel near the jetty.
I just loved it and even the pain from walking down, and up, the steep street was worth it.
The beach is vast with cliffs at either end. Rocks form pools, and the sand is clean.
Passing one bar we saw a trio playing music and singing, and people joining in.
When returning to the car, I saw some men carrying violins who were heading down , obviously to perform.

Directions: Past the Millenium statue is the way down to the sea through the village. The road is steep but on the left are steps with a hand rail.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
