  • That's a very nice spot! The bay is beautiful. The large beach has very soft sand. Although we were there on a sunny Sunday in the holiday season it was quite empty.  more »
  • Too bad the weather not lenient, but the beach is gorgeous, huge, magnificent cliffs and ville le face around. Nice and romantic for a walk ... when the sun comes out!
