Visited the beach cafe with my dogs and it’s such a lovely little place for bacon and coffee while walking the dogs in the morning... can’t beat the view either! Staff are great and friendly.

Clean and inviting. Lots of people making use of it in the winter. Not over commercialized. A good old fashioned beach with lots of walking around if you want to.
