  • Definitely the most beautiful beach on Reunion Island, the space has been redeveloped, to improve the picnic areas. On weekends the site is very busy, but free during the week, the aisles are ideal for a morning jog, there are sports facilities and the view from the piton is beautiful

  • A quick ride on this beautiful beach. Lots of people but beautiful waves... I'm not sure swimming is easy.

  • Stunning beach and surrounding park. The swimming area is a bit small but very safe. The beach park is perfect for relaxing in the shade and seems to be popular with joggers because of the gravel paths.
  • One of the most beautifull beach. There is a little saw water pool but it's forbidden to swim in the sea due to sharks. So sad.
