There is great sea fishing to be had just walking distance from the backpackers in the picturesque harbour area. The pier is a top place to catch fish such as bass and mackerel and a good place to get top tips form the local fisherman! Fishing charter boats can be hired from Ilfracombe Harbour and you can go as a group or join a group for a half day/ full days fishing.
Just see the display boards along the harbour wall or visit
