Fresh fish can be bought from The Fish Stall where you can also choose live crab and lobsters from the shop’s tanks. Mackerel fishing trips and speed boat cruises operate from the Quay and crabbing is always a popular activity along the seafront promenade (kids should be closely supervised due to strong currents). 

There is a large car park, toilets, a public slipway, and lifeboat station and a cluster of historic buildings thought to date from 1695 (Haven Cottages) and 1830 (The Haven House Inn). The Haven House Inn (pub) has a café and gift shop
