The picturesque old harbour is now used mainly by fishermen and yachtsmen, or by ferries which cannot enter Maseline Harbour due to adverse conditions. There is also a small enclosed beach reached via a tunnel in the rock. The famous Sark Water Carnival is held at Creux in mid summer. http:/ports.org.uk/port.asp?id=146 Date: circa 1900
