3 Of The Best Beach Restaurants In The South of England

Summer dining on the beach

It’s summer in Britain, and there is nothing nicer than sitting in a fresh, breezy and light beach restaurant, watching the sunset.

The panoramic views and vast stretches of ocean calms and soothes the soul. We feel relaxed and more connected to our picturesque planet. This, coupled with a crisp class of wine, an ice cold beer or a sumptuous cocktail on the beach seems to be the perfect way to spend an afternoon. So where are the best places in the South to unwind? Cornwall is the perfect beach destination, surrounded by ocean and lush greenery.

But where are the best beach restaurants? Our pick this month has to be:

1.  Beachhouse

2. St Michaels Hotel & Spa, Falmouth

If you would like a more formal feel with great views and excellent cuisine, head to the St Micheals Hotel and Spa in Falmouth, Cornwall. It’s stylish and glittering interior is the perfect place for that special occasion. White sandy beaches are a stones throw from the Hotel. The Flying Fish restaurant, inside this glorious hotel, overlooks the ocean and offers its diners all the comforts of a top eatery.

At St Micheals you can also enjoy a massage or pedicure before your dining experience to add that extra touch of indulgence.
