Had a lovely stay at the Flying Penguin. It is central. The room was fantastic. They provided us with everything right down to milk. I highly recommend the Flying Penguin for a break away. The kids loved it.

It really is a must see town, there is a scratch patch with the most beautiful stones. Boulders beach is a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy the penguins and plenty of shops to browse, plus a very nice yacht club with plenty of spots to choose from to grab something to eat.
