Wander through narrow lanes with shops selling tempting things from glassware crafts, jewellery, gifts and clothes to tasty treats and local delicacies.

Then climb the 199 steps up onto the headland to discover the starkly romantic ruins of the Abbey perched high on the cliff above the town.

Take a boat trip round the bay from the working harbour or just soak up the atmosphere of this characterful fishing town.
