  • Dockside Takeaway was very close by and has amazing food for a really decent price. Just do me and the the environment a favor, please don't feed your greasy and salty foods to the birds. It will cause more harm than good. Save it for yourself.

  • Beautiful location, great meals and friendly service at the local pub. The locals are friendly and happy to help. We would move to Bridport if we could afford it.

  • Go out to Granite Park at sunset and enjoy the view from the orange rocks. Walk over to Adams beach from the rocks for a wonderful sunset view!

  • If recommended to drive to Ansons Bay - be advised that its a gravel road and the excess on rental cars jumps up x3 on them! Besides the Bay of Fires is just as beautiful from Bichenov, Swansea, Coles Bay etc.

  • Travelling to the hostel is probably easier for getting around to the various places of interest and using the hostel as a base. Also good place to stay all year round, really.
