Grande plage, mais souvent blindée de monde. Pour les jeux, ce n'est pas du sable mais des petits gravillons donc moins pratique pour les enfants.Great beach, but often armoured world. For games, it is not sand but a small gravel so less convenient for children.show original

Пляж с песком на берегу и на дне. В море, на некотором расстоянии от берега, разместили буйки, так что можно и с детьми искупаться. На берегу душ и раздевалки. А вот закат с берега виден плохо.Beach with sand on the beach and at the bottom. In the sea, some distance from the shore, placed the buoys, so you can swim with your children. On the banks of showers and changing rooms. And here is the sunset seen from the shore is a bad thing.show original
