Internet TV

Instead of watching on a PC, (which can be inconvenient )

Another way is a dedicated Mini PC or Android box, permanently cabled (HDMI) to your TV

Shore or Rock fishing near to BArcares or Collioure

Is there decent Shore or Rock fishing near to BArcares or Collioure please

I prefer to fish from rocks, rather than beach, so I guess Collioure would be better


Is there anywhere accessible near to Collioure , preferably on the outskirts of Collioure (no traffic or parking issues)


Thanks
