Top 5 Places to Enjoy a Drink with a Sea View
In recent years there’s been an increase in the number of bars, bistros and restaurants which have opened up along the Cornish coast. Here are five of our favourites.
The Beach Hut, Watergate Bay
The Beach Hut is well known as one of Cornwall’s best beach-side hang-outs and it offers a great place to eat. Enjoy brilliant breakfasts, lazy lunches, cosy evenings, extremely amazing hot chocolates, and a great menu and with its superb setting overlooking Watergate Bay, there are sunsets to rival anywhere in the world. Open all year, seven days a week.
Schooners Bistro, Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes
Situated right on the water’s edge, overlooking one of Cornwall’s most picturesque coves on the north coast, Schooners is somewhat of a hidden gem. Overlooking the beach at Trevaunance Cove you can sip wine, beers, teas, coffees, hot chocolates, smoothies, and ice creams, and enjoy informal dining with views to die for. There are lashings of great home-cooked food with a small but varied menu to cater for most tastes. Open daily from Easter to October.
Porthminster Beach Café, St Ives
