There's also the local bowling (lawn bowls) club to get in with the locals as well as enjoy cheap eats, too (try the Sunday roast). You don't really have to go far (or spend money to get there) to find some 'action'.

Walk just a little further and you can visit a couple of vineyards (Kennedy Point, Goldie) with beautiful grounds, award-winning wines for tasting, and eating onsite.

    Very cute little bach, it is small but perfectly suitable for a couple or small group of friends, its in a great location with bus stop across the road, and the beach just around the corner (a lovely little bay, so good to swim in!). Short walk to local shops too. We did have a little trouble with the fold out couch being broken, but the owner has been very good to deal with regarding this, and I believe she is getting it sorted. Overall a good little place to stay, and reasonably priced.

    Nice location - busy road when we were there but it was a long weekend. Walking distance to town if you don't mind a walk. Clean. A heater would be a good idea and we were surprised there was no tv or radio, but it never said there was on the ad so no worries - should have asked. Overall, nice relaxing place.

    Beautiful Bach right on the beach, pub and restaurants. The beach is a stones-throw away too! Great for anyone looking to relax on the island for a few nights. The WiFi was really fast, the bed was comfy and the location was great what more could you ask for.
