The view of the beach, the quirky design and decor of the place and the fantastic staff make it a great spot to come chill out during the day... I recommend the feta and coriander samosas!

The Kennaways have created a Bohemian spot on probably one of the most beautiful stretches of beach. The kitesurfers love it and so do us locals! Madafoos has that land back feel and is the ideal chill out zone. The meals are great too!!!
