If you are fortunate you will spot the dolphins or whales just offshore. The rocky seashore invites snorkelling, fishing, sea- kayaking or beachcombing for treasures.

  • This cottage is perfect for a little time away from it all

    This cottage is perfect for a little time away from it all. We were blessed with blue skies and a full moon on our stay. The little touches in the cottage made it relaxing, and added to the ambience of the cottage and the location. Will be back again, Thank you!
