  • Picture book setting. The colours of the buildings jump out at you. The brewery is a great place to visit. The bar tenders were amazing and make excellent recommendations based on the type of beer...

  • Beautiful sites and sounds on this part of the East Coast Trail. I just love to take the dog and hike around here. Pristine trails, beautiful colors and rock cliffs. You just need to experience it!
  • Great little place, as a tourist it looked to me like a movie set which could have been about a 'fishing village and a giant shark' or....a whale that was lost on its way to the Arctic....or a fisherman who actually caught the smallest fish in the world.
