I love walking round San Telmo, love the little cove and go looking for seaglass on it. This time due to the big waves (and once the cove was re-opened) there were lots of empty sea urchins to marvel at! Great place to people watch...More

We passed through this area several times on our holiday. We always stopped and admired the scenery. A beautiful spot to spend some time to watch the sea crashing against the rocks and people snorkelling/swimming.

A beautiful location no matter the weather. When he sea is rough it's as wonderful as when it's calm. The The only difference is that on calm days you can watch the hundreds of crabs scurrying over the rocks below

I loved walkng around here after tea. A few times I wentby myself. I felt very safe and enjoyed watching the waves in the evening crashing against the rocks. Popping in and out of shops. Everyone friendly and welcoming.

Nice to have a swim here, there are plenty of fish, but the sea creates a swell, which can wash you onto the rocks, so take it steady. In a flat calm sea it would be amazing. If you get there at low tide the...More

This is a good place to simply sit and watch the dramatic and constant performance of the seas which crash into the shore. Very attractive

A bit surprised that the chapel doesn't have a separate listing. It's a lovely little building overlooking the beach. The beach itself is rock and pebble but still popular with sunbathers and swimmers. It has been paved nicely with both steps and a ramp to...More

Hi we landed at the south side airport so it was an hour and a half from the airport. Journey isn't to bad. Where as if you land north side it is about 30 minute journey.
