Love this cafe. Perfect pit stop on a coastal walk or when coming out of the surf. Great food, made with good quality ingredients. Cakes are all handmade by the owner and they are fabulous. A wonderful cafe run by a wonderful lady.

Hidden amongst the dunes we found the bluebay cafe. Friendly service, nice selection of drinks and food, and in the middle of nowhere! Looks like a shack but amazing inside. Puts many cafe’s to shame, well done we will be back.
