A local cafe on Chalkwell Beach

The Saltwater Beach Cafe is warm and friendly cafe on Chalkwell Beach. It was born out of memories of founder Liz Carr’s childhood, back to when she would spend her days on the beach or in parks with family and friends, whatever the weather, then going to local cafes to warm up in the colder months and for an ice cream treat in the winter.

She wanted her children to grown up with the same freedom, but knowing the world is a very different place just a few decades later, it was important that Saltwater Beach Cafe was a safe place for everyone, with parents able to watch their children as they played outside.
