If you’re looking for locally sourced, fabulous food, the perfect beach setting for a wedding or special occasion, or exhilarating watersports, Venus has it all.

We’re positioned at stunning locations in Devon and Cornwall, including some of the best beaches in the South West. You can find us at Blackpool Sands, Bigbury on Sea, East Portlemouth, Tolcarne and Watergate Bay, as well as our inland café at The Shops at Dartington.

We’re a proud environmental champion striving to provide tasty wholesome food, excellent watersports and quality beach goods, all delivered with an ethical philosophy. We also always endeavour to take care and maintain the environmental balance of all our beaches to fulfil our mission of being the greenest beach café, takeaway and shop operator. 


Blackpool Sands Cafe will be closed Monday to Friday week beginning 24th April to allow our staff a well earned rest after an extremely hectic & wonderful Easter & also to refurbish our cafe deck which has suffered from rot and needs replacing.

Blackpool Sands take away & shop will be open every day offering the normal take away food, drink & ice cream.    The outside tables will be available.

East Portlemouth cafe will be closed Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday next week & then every Tuesday & Wednesday through until May 1/2 term.
