There are many activities locally for you to enjoy, be it cliff walks along the Atlantic waves, kayaking, canoeing, or rock climbing, abseiling a round of golf, horse riding, bird watching or simply taking in the view over a cup of coffee in our local beach cafe you can have it all.

  • Lillian and Dominick were seasoned hosts and very comfortable with guests in their home. The breakfast was yummy and the accommodations clean. They know the local area (and other areas) well and can provide good advice. They are fun and knowledgeable people and easy to hang out with if that is your preference.
