Plage des Amandiers is closest to the cottages. Bear in mind that you can find this beach about three quarters of a mile from the cottages, so you'll never be far from the sea—an endless sparkling backdrop to your vacation. Aptly named, this beach is unique because of the almond trees along the shore. The coast is wild and rugged, with dangerous swimming conditions, but a little picnic table makes it a great place to stop and have a snack or a meal while you enjoy the scenery.
If you're searching for a stretch of sand that attracts very few tourists, La Plage de Cluny could be just what the doctor ordered. La Plage de Cluny is mainly used for swimming and nude suntanning.
