STAY at The Panoramic View – simple luxury, right on the beach

EAT fish and chips at Gurney’s Inn, right next door to The Panoramic View

DRINK at Nick’s, a beach bar right in town with live music

ADOPT a sock monkey and shop for other kitsch Americana at a shop on the main street in town (don’t remember the name)
