One of the greatest attractions of this village is the local harbor. Here, along with the gorgeous views, you can watch the local fishermen bringing in fish and lobster. Village life here is also portrayed in the television series Doc Martin, Poldark, and Saving Grace, which have made Port Isaac even more attractive to travelers.
