We had a lovely lunch here overlooking the beach. All meals were good sized and reasonably priced. Also great place to take kids as kids packs available at a small cost and space for them to move about a bit

Well prepared food at an agreeable price, right opposite the beach. This is a good venue to spend some quiet time on holiday.

The surf club offers a good range of food and drink. There are tables inside and out, so you can get a good view of the sea.
