More often than not, gems come by to those who wander off a different path. Tomisstan Cafe is the epitome of that gem of a place.

Unlike most cafes in the cities with extravagant aesthetics, this cafe is located in a rather secluded area. The journey here may be somewhat of a hassle – roads to the cafe can get pretty narrow and rocky. But locating this beachside attraction will be well-worth the trip.

Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with the enthralling beauty of the magical blue lagoon, endless azure skies, and unmistakable scent of the salty sea. While Mother Nature is enchanting enough, the cafe creates a charming atmosphere for patrons at its premise too.

Going for a laidback-yet-chic aesthetic apt for a seaside shack, the cafe’s interior comprises wood and stone elements, including welcoming timber doors and a mini wooden footbridge. There’s also a cobblestone walkway flanked by log stumps that leads patrons to the cafe.

Secluded as the cafe may be, the beach where it is located is often alive with a crowd. Families often come by to treat their kids to a beachside breakfast, while groups of friends or couples head here to stroll along the golden sands.

Needless to say, soaking up views of the glorious sunset that paints the sky in the evenings is a must.
