We saw a plane land on the beach then enjoyed coffee and cake in this little café cum departure lounge. It was very busy but the staff were friendly and helpful.

We were waiting for a flight to Glasgow and decided to have lunch in the airport cafe. So glad we did! My risotto was delicious. Everything looked appetising. Really good value too. Worth visiting if you're in the area even if you're not flying.
