Nice place to visit to get a refreshing view over the ocean. Can be either accessed by foot or by car with various parking lots nearby. You will get a good taste of britanny.

The favourite place for my wife for "the écrevisses à la crème". A spectacular view of la pointe du Groin. Nice service and fresh dead food. A very good place to try!

Plenty car parking and nearby motorhome parking then a short walk past a good restaurant to the headland viewpoint. As you travel south the shallows create azure blue strips in the sea, blending with the deeper dark areas and sandbanks. Walking and cycle tracks up...More

Now we know why they call this area the Emerald Coast. Beautiful views. A sea so clear, a bird watchers paradise.
