In calm, clear conditions the rocky reef formation, containing remains of shellfish, fish species, plant material and petrified wood is a wonderful snorkelling spot and as the fossil beds lie a short distance from the shoreline, at low spring tide it is even possible to wade out and examine these ancient remains. This little sea-side resort was named in the late 19th century by missionary relatives of the great sea lord, Viscount Horatio Nelson, after the decisive naval battle in 1805 where the French and Spanish fleets were defeated by the English under their famous forebear. Not surprisingly, names of many illustrious and famous English seamen were selected as street names.
