A lovely little cafe selling drinks and snacks. Lots of seating outdoors. A pier to sit on. A beach for the children to play on. This cafe also rents SUP's and Kayaks.

We had nice stop here on our biking trip. It's a good place for ice gream, coffee or salty or sweet snack. Drinks also available! There is nice sandy swimming beach and some water activities around. Beautiful sea view! Watch out for seagulls!

Variety of products in the cafe is very basic, but the view from the terrace is nice. Definitely a place to visit in summer.

I like to visit this cafe every time I walk or bike down that beach. Be it some coffee with sweets, or a glass of cider - always a pleasant experience thanks to nice staff and beautiful quiet location.

whether during winter or summer, this is a great place to have a coffee. The view on the sea and neighbouring islands is great. You can also walk along the sea in a great pedestrian path after your coffee. tables are outside, wooden bunch and a volley ball field in summer. They also rent kayak.
