Godrevy Beach Café
Gwithian Towans Hayle Cornwall TR27 5ED
Godrevy beach is home to one of Cornwall’s most popular surf breaks. The Atlantic swell wraps around the iconic Godrevy Lighthouse and rolls into shore in perfect little peelers that beckon surfers of all levels. But it’s not just the consistent waves – or the much photographed lighthouse and miles of sand – that bring the crowds to Godrevy. Tucked in the sand dunes behind the beach, the Godrevy Beach Café is almost as popular as the beach itself. And once you’ve sampled the home-baked cakes, hearty breakfasts, doorstep sandwiches and lunch platters stuffed with fresh Cornish ingredients, you won’t surprised to see a queue of sandy-soled punters wrapped around this timber chalet on a sunny day. Even on the wildest winter’s day the café is open, serving giant cookies, moist muffins and crumbly apricot and oat slices, perfect with a hot chocolate or Cornish cream tea. Made for all weathers – you can hunker down on the sofa, bask on the decking or bring buckets and spades to the sand pit. Hearty, wholesome food and a friendly welcome to dogs and families, this place certainly isn’t just for post-surf posse.
