In contrast with East Beach, the West beach cafe is lovely. Designed by Asif Khan, it’s modest and entirely appropriate to its location, looking a bit like a container at the top of the beach. We passed it on our circular walk with Maxie along the sand and back along a lane behind the golf course. And I had the first swim of the year – although it hardly counted. It was so shallow the water was really warm from the sun, but I got wet, and I swam.
