Its walls and walkways are covered in paintings created by the crews of visiting ships. Peter's Cafe Sport, located across from the marina, houses the island's scrimshaw museum. A collection of artefacts carved from whale tooth and jawbone. This café is a point of reference for trans-Atlantic yachtsmen and sailors.

Port-Vendres is a fishing port on the Mediterranean coast of France, next to the Spanish border. This town of only 5,000 inhabitants is famous for its fish and seafood restaurants which you should visit for a lovely meal with a seaside view.
