Small but perfectly formed, Rozel Harbour is home to fishing boats, brightly coloured holiday houses and the Island’s most beloved beach-side café, The Hungry Man. Locals flock to Rozel on sunny (and not so sunny) weekends for bacon rolls, crab sandwiches, huge mugs of hot chocolate and the infamous ‘double decker health wrecker’ burger which are all served from a tardis-like kiosk on Rozel pier.
While Rozel is more of a working fishing harbour than a sun-bathing beach, a small strip of sand and plenty of rock pools are revealed below the harbour wall at low-tide, perfect to walk off the delights of the Hungry Man. The harbour faces north-east, so the sun dips behind the headland during late afternoon.
Elsewhere in Rozel visitors will find a quaint tea room, a traditional pub with a great reputation for food, and tucked away in an elevated position above the bay in its own wonderful gardens is Chateau La Chaire boutique Hotel, famed for its Afternoon Tea.
There is limited free public parking along the harbour side and it pays to arrive early to secure a spot. Visitors travelling by bus should catch route number 3.
