Hole in the Van, Lancelin

There is nothing better than hitting the coast early on a summer’s morning with coffee in hand and enjoying our amazing coastline, and it doesn’t get more beachfront than Hole In The Van café in Lancelin. The café is made from a converted caravan with raised decking around it giving it a perfect vantage point to see the sea, after all, that’s how it got its name, it looks out over the Hole In The Wall surf break!

This little gem is tucked away from the street and sits right on the beach making it very kid-friendly with no traffic to worry about. The ocean is a safe distance away but close enough to enjoy the view. The huge lawn is great for playing and has lots of bean bags to relax in. There is a huge tub of sidewalk chalk to entertain the kids too. Our windmeter was reading in excess of 20kn on the beach when we visited but the café was tucked away from most of it so all we felt was a lovely breeze.

The cafe serves up your usual coffee hits as well as freshly made smoothies and milkshakes (the mango smoothie was amazing). They also have a selection of muffins, brownies and raw treats on offer to go with your coffee, or frozen fruit pops if you’re after something colder after hitting the beach! Fur babies are looked after too with fresh water and doggie treats available.
