A cafe with views from the beach to the Sahara
The Crest cafe
The Crest cafe at Birubi Beach Surf Clubhouse has some of the best views over the beach. There is lots of ample free parking there too.
It is situated at the top of Burubi Beach and over looks the sand dunes on Stockton Beach and the rocky headland on the point. Sitting down you can enjoy the tourists going on a camel ride along the beach.

You can also go to the Stockton Sand Dunes (right next door) or it is a perfect place for Whale Watching as the whales travel past here twice a year.

You can sit on the balcony and enjoy the alfresco dining or there are tables inside the cafe. The interior of the cafe is beach chic and there is also a take away counter where you could get fish'n'chips or an ice cream after a long day on the beach.
With a great location, great service, food and coffee you can have a lazy breakfast by the sea from 8 am to 11.30 am or a relaxing lunch from 11.30 am to 4 pm 7 days a week. Dinner is also available on Friday and Saturday but bookings are advised.
After you enjoy your meal or a coffee and cake you can enjoy a walk along the beach, a quick dip or explore the sleepy little fishing hamlets on the coast.
