We swung by from Lower Hut one evening thinking the place would be live with a beach culture but how wrong we were. The places was almost deserted and hardly anywhere was open.

We chose a glorious spring day to go for a walk from Days bay to Eastbourne. It was so pretty, with glassy water and people busy enjoying the beach and water sport. Great coffee at a wee cafe

We ate at Chocolate Dayz Bay. It was quite good I remember, and busy. I didn’t do a review because I couldn’t remember what we ate except you ordered at the bar — no Waiter service.
