Beautiful town with a lot of walking trails to explore. Take some time to hang out on the beaches. And enjoy the peace and quiet this amazing town has to offer.

What a beautiful,peaceful and stuning place. Lovely places to eat and soak up the view along with a stuning art gallery full of handmade gifts. We will visit again soon! Activities like paddle boarding and Kyaking were all on offer too!
