Lovely cafe located just by the beach with friendly staff and a good choice of food and drink. Would definitely recommend it for chilling out after the beach or before.

We regularly visit the Rockpool when we are taking our guests to the North Coast. Their seafood meals are good value and consistently good quality

The cafe is adjacent Stokes Bay (you need to access this through a bit of a "tunnel" of rocks - follow the sign). Whatever you do, don't miss the beach. Cafe has drinks and serves meals, mostly fish. Staff are very friendly.

What a great meal. We were lucky that King George Whiting was the “catch of the day” !! Cooked to perfection with light crumbing. The calamari also melts in your mouth. A brilliant find in KI.
