This has to be one of the nicest beach cafes I’ve been to. And set on one of the nicest beaches too. Food and drinks were excellent; staff very friendly too. Child friendly. And planet friendly! Highly recommended.

The charges change throughout the season. Up to £7 for the day last year however the price reduced during the day. If using Venus for an evening meal then arriving late is free.
