The poolside Beachcomber Café is the ideal place to spend a couple of hours for those who prefer to spectate.



Westward Ho!

westward hoWestward Ho! offers a taste of  a classic British seaside resort. There are arcades aplenty, go-carts, crazy golf and some of the best fish and chips around. If that’s not your cup of tea, the beach here is endless and there are several surfing and kite-surfing schools for the more active among us. Dogs are welcome on the beach out of season but there are restrictions in place between May and October.
