The Salix, Small Hope Beach, Shanklin IOW

I’m not here to advertise but if I come across something or somewhere good then I’m happy to highlight it.

It’s a beautiful day on the Island, the sun is shining and its just a little warmer than it’s been recently. There are definite signs that spring is on its way….thank goodness!

The perfect day for a walk along the beach (with the added advantage that there aren’t many people around!)

Where to stop for lunch?

We remembered that one of the little cafes on the front had changed hands and the new people were looking to “do things a little differently”

New signage, some decking, new furniture, and a wood burner are just some of the improvements. Double glazed French windows lead onto the decking and the beach.

The food and coffee were lovely, the location and views sublime, a terrific addition to our beach.


Sitting on the decking in the sun with the sounds of the waves, it doesn’t get much better!



It’s going to be lovely to sit in front of the woodburner this coming winter and watch the waves crashing on the beach outside whilst wrapped in a complementary rug and drinking decent coffee! (not that I’m wishing for winter!)

Good luck ‘The Salix’ and here’s hoping you have a terrific season, we’ll certainly be back soon.
