A place to visit !

Always changing, a place to see any time of the year ! Never go swimming there, it's way too dangerous.

pick a sunny day to visit to see a wonder of nature and then take a stormy day for the next, things will probably have changed and you will see another aspect of this feature

Nice spot to visit. Lots of free parkings and a tremendous beach walk. Go on a sunny day ( or afternoon to enjoy the sunset) with high tides but beware of the wind. Kids loved playing on this lovely beach We loved seeing waves crashing on sandy shore

Visit either side of the entrance to the Ria d'Etel preferably on a dry windy day around high tide. Waves crash in over the sand bar and rip round rocks into the river.The sands move round the estuary with each tide. Lots of easy beach walks. Lots of parking. Beware-public lavatories not available in the vicinity

We were staying in Etel with friends who took us for a drive to Barre d'Etel. A beautiful spot. We could have spent more time there. Hopefully we will be back one day.
