West Bay is a lovely place to walk, snack and people watch. Lots of interesting things to visit. The little shopping place at the old customs house is fascinating .

Found a motorhome parking place go left away from harbour only £2 a day! The harbour is lovely and visit the old Customs House for anything old. Worth a visit lots to look at.

There is a large play area at beside the first car park when entering West Bay on the left. If you are there at the end of August there is an annual 'fare ground amusement' field.
