Beach Café

Let’s protect each other
With our phased and cautious re-opening it is so important we help to protect each other. Please be aware that the Beach Cafe is currently operating in a takeaway capacity only. As part of our safety policy, we ask all customers to use the hand sanitiser provided, adhere to strict social distancing and pay by card in the cafe - contactless if possible. At present there is no seating available either inside or outside the Beach Cafe.

We stress the importance of protecting each other during this reopening process. Please use your good sense and be respectful of our local community when deciding whether to travel to our beaches If you do choose to visit, we ask you to respect our staff and their right to be given safe social distancing in carrying out their job. Please follow their directions as they manage new parking and catering arrangements. We also ask you to respect other visitors by maintaining appropriate social distancing and being aware of tighter spaces when buying your parking ticket, food and drink and at all times during your visit. And please respect the wildlife that is currently nesting on the nature reserve by keeping your dogs under control and staying clear of the cordoned areas on the beach.

The next few weeks will be a new experience for us all, but by working together we can help to make it a positive one. Thank you.
