When you get to the town, the first thing you will notice, if you are in a car, is the lack of parking. There is no big car park. Everyone seems to want to park on the main street, and it can get quite congested with people walking all over the road, seemingly unaware of cars!
My tip is to pull off into a side street and park there, and walk. It is not far at all.
It really is no big deal, just making you all aware of it.
