“Fantastic Restaurant”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Right on the beach - fantastic food - fantastic service - fantastic views! You can't go wrong here for dinner or breakfast - both equally enjoyable. Nothing to dislike!

Reviewed March 4, 2014

Brilliant small cove with a great little cafe. Sandy beach with clear waters kicking up the sand as it breaks onto the beach.

“A sheltered haven”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

When Porthminster and Porthmeor beaches are rather cold and windy escape the wind by enjoying this sheltered beach. The usual facilities on offer and a good base for exploring the 'Island' and St Nicholas chapel.

“small and beautiful”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Sheltered, a good view of Godrevy Lighthouse. Good for kids to play on. Plenty of wildlife to see most days. A good cafe too!
