If you want to see what the beach is supposed to look like, take a look at our beaches directory. There is even a virtual tour, so you can see what it used to look like.

To The Castle

The main harbour road got a real battering during the storms. This has now been cleared. If you watch the film you can see a drive-through, taken with the 360 camera. So I won't be repeating the pictures here. We shall go straight to the castle.
