Few hours on the beach before flying

This is a great beach. The light was awesome, the sea was calm for once. We went there with my parents just before flying, the airport is 20mn away by car. Love this place

Drove from Spain to have lunch here and strolled the beach. Absolutely this place has breath taking views!

First day walk found us overlooking this beach. Active surf scene with a nice 4 foot break. Mostly long board riders this day. The beach is quite long. Appears to have ample street parking. I am certain on a summer day it would be jammed

An idylic place, amazing and beautiful in itself plus giving the chance to watch the waves crush against the rocks and jump meters high! Also you have a sight of the whole Grande Plage and the harbour.

Large, clean and imposing. Take your swimming suite (and your combi if you are cold), sunscreen and you are ready. Leave your hotel early if you need to search for parcing.

An absolutely beautiful beach with a lively atmosphere. Good for all ages and people-watching. It was a perfectly clear day to enjoy the waves and clear waters.

Fantastic large beach with plenty of surfing happening. There is a park with switchback paths overlooking the beach. It also seemed that this beach was a little less crowded than the others in town.

If I could give this attraction a 7 put of 5, I would. This is one of the most beaches I have ever seen. A beautiful walk with lots to see also no the way from surfers to statues.
