  • In summer more than crowded, clean beach the morning but dirty in the morning. Attention to your business!

  • This large sandy beach is enclosed and protected from the wind which is not bad when there are grand mistral, you can paddle or windsurfing, there are a few restaurants on the beach, but it's still the restaurants to tourists, do not search the gourmet... But this is practical when there is not enough food especially with children. There are two car parks nearby but be careful not to wait for the afternoon before you go, otherwise it is more complicated to find parking especially when we do not know the area.
