There is an excellent beach with launching ramp, rock and freshwater fishing, and several boats take sea anglers out from the harbour to catch wrasse, cod, mackerel, haddock, whiting, plaice and skate.
Bowls, tennis and putting are available near the harbour, where water ski-ing is popular during the season. Horse riding and pony trecking may be enjoyed at Lochnaw a few miles away. Sub-aqua clubs visit the area to seek and search for the wrecks to be found along the coast.
One such wreck was the Orion, which sank after running aground on rocks at the north end of the village. Of the 60 people drowned, many are buried in the old churchyard.
The Waterfront Hotel caters for visitors who like to tour around or simply stay in the village and enjoy the leisurely life, good food and good company. Proof of the Port’s appeal can be seen in the number of people who return year after year or make the village their second home.
