Beach
“Come and enjoy Well's beach., Come here to see the sunrise and this particular beach has the perfect horizon to see just that. The beach is also dog friendly between specific hours which is great when traveling with pets. There are always plenty of seashells and pretty rocks on the shore to collect during a nice long walk on the beach. If you're lucky, you might even see a porpoise”
