A wonderful location with lovely décor and atmosphere - food of a high quality and a good selection at variable prices to suit all. A lovely balcony to sit out on when the weather is good and stunning views.

The Shack has excellent access with its own car park (quite rare in the area, and a steep walk if you dont have this!) and location on one of the best beaches. Food is average, not 'fine', but serves its purpose as a beach cafe
