Gwithian's only beachside café, bar and surf hire -

We can’t wait to see you!

We like to think that everything we do embodies the laid-back Cornish lifestyle. From our use of Cornish suppliers, to employing local staff, we not only support our community, but also give our customers great, fresh food and efficient service. This is made even more enjoyable by our incredible view of Gwithian beach.
