Port Isaac is today an unspoilt, pretty fishing village where white slate-hung cottages run down to a sheltered harbour. Around the harbour there are signs of old and new - Old Pilchard Cellars - reminders of an industry long gone when Port Isaac was a busy coastal port, exporting coal, timber and pottery.
Today crabbers nestle in the harbour, the backdrop of which houses quality restaurants, pubs and interesting shops linked by tiny alleys - one called Squezee- Belly Alley. In recent times Port Isaac has been the setting for both film and TV productions including the Doc Martin series and Saving Grace and its sequel.
So why not wander amongst the 18th and 19th-century cottages and soak up the atmosphere of this charming coastal village.
Nearby are two other smaller harbours, Port Quin, sometimes known as The Village that died, after the entire male population disappeared mysteriously in the 19th century. It is mainly owned and run by the National Trust.
To the north of Port Isaac, is the small village of Port Gaverne. It is situated at the end of a deep winding valley and at low tide there is a small sheltered sandy beach, with an abundance of rock pools.
