pleasures of discovering the treasures of the underwater world can keep children
and adults alike entertained for hours.
To the south the Plage du Grand
Boisvinet has a base for divers and windsurfers although swimming is
prohibited. The Plage de Boisvinet has surveillance, and the rocks are
exposed at low tide. Next to the harbour the Plage de Morpoigne, reveals
rocks and rock pools at low tide.
To the north of harbour, the Plage du
Pe du Canon is a beautiful beach with fine golden sand and surveillance. The
Plage de la Point du Canon is rocky. The Plage de Madoreau is on a rocky
coastline with sand above the high water mark. The Plage de Legere is
similar to the Plage de Madoreau.

it is a little wider than the previous two beaches.
