Amenities and Ambiance

This long beach is very remote, so expect plenty of peace, quiet, and room to move around explore. Those that decide to check out the surroundings will find mostly open fields and some lite vegetation. However, this peacefulness does not always hold true for the seas, as the beach faces the full brunt of the Atlantic Ocean. While the waves here will generally be at a minimum, stormy conditions and currents can make it unsafe for swimming.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

If you happen to prefer beach days which offer those who visit a relaxing enclave, then a good choice for you is Anse Taliseronde; it is located in a more natural section of the region.
