The historical beach of the destination
A true witness to our History, the landing beach was one of the main Allied landing sites in Provence. This beach is also a very beautiful place with a superb panorama. It extends over 500m, with a part composed of sand and another of pebbles. It is the ideal place to organize picnics or to go to visit the creeks by kayak !
