Best cafés beside the seaside
Sun, sea and excellent food, all bang on the beach. We can only pick three of the UK’s best beach cafés but if you know and love another, let us know.
Porthminster Beach Café, St Ives, Cornwall
Local seafood, own-grown herbs and vegetables are given Mediterranean and Asian twists at this glammed-up café. The views, particularly from the outdoor tables, are spectacular.
Crab House Café, Weymouth, Dorset
This quirky crab shack overlooking Chesil Beach is famous for its spanking-fresh seafood, including boiled crabs served up on wooden boards and Portland oysters from the café’s own oyster beds.

East Beach Caf
, Littlehampton, West Sussex
Who said Littlehampton wasn’t cool? Designed by Thomas Hetherwick, this iconic, eye-catching building is as modern a venue as you can get. The cooking takes a more classic turn with British favourites such as fish and chips.
