Fantastic beach with a bit of a walk from the car park. The beach is beautiful but the sea is rough with very strong currants not really suitable for youngsters to swim

Park the car in one of many designated car parks and get out and enjoy the wonderful coastline. Excellent for walking, swimming or sunbathing - depending on the weather. Have fun!

Fantastic beach. Beautiful sandy dune with rolling Atlantic breakers. Life guards if you need them and a lovely lighthouse at one end.

Wonderful sand, powerful waves, and lifeguarded in certain spots. I visited two sites, both with life guards. The first was at the Forestier de al Bouverie. There is a campervan-type refreshment vehicle that comes, but other than that, nothing. The car park is a fair...More

Hi Susie I have to say I don't know. I have heard dogs are mostly banned from beaches in France and we didn't see any whilst there.
