The harbour and Brewers Quay are interesting to walk around and soak up the atmosphere, stopping for a coffee or a drink in one of the many hostelries. You can fish from the quay or crab fish from the rocks near Nothe Fort. There is a wide choice of restaurants and takeaways to suit all tastes and budget.
