All village facilities (car park, toilets, shops etc.) but no lifeguard as not required. Several restaurants, a post office, public house and art & craft shops.

Several car parks in Port Isaac. The nearest is at the back of the harbour but you have to negotiate the narrow streets to get to it.
The car park at the top of the village is more accessible. Follow the coast path for a more level walk to the village centre.
