Other comments:  The remains of a uboat are on this reef 20m south of the low water mark in front of the Falmouth Hotel, It was one the the uboats that sank at Silver steps,  It has been heavily salvaged as those at the Silver Steps but there is more of it than any of the others.

Pub:  There are some pubs around, the most popular is the Chain Locker about 1 mile away by Customs house Quay
