Guillaume L.August 11, 2017Beautiful beach, a spot for surfer or bodyboard. Free parking, quite small, no toilet indicated. A Board, take the Coast trail up towards the tip of the raz, beautiful walk.
Florence CartierMay 9, 2017A beautiful place and a great ballad from the beach up to the edge of the tidal wave and its semaphore. Two hours round-trip by taking the time to admire the tip of raz... to recommend. Also go see the chapel of the point of van. The view on the edge of the tidal wave is very different and the place is full of calm and serenity
Morgane le brisApril 11, 2017Beautiful beach, attention to the current as well as the waves (when there are any). A nice ride from the beach up to the tip of the tsunami by the coastal path.
Patrick MerleJuly 21, 2017Beautiful place and place of departure to 2 excellent walks to the edge of the tidal wave and the tip of the Van.
