Amenities and Ambiance

Very fine, white sands lead to waters in varying shades of view at this beach, which is clear and calm. There is very little shade, but the otherwise great conditions make it worth applying sunscreen a little more frequently.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location. Fortunately, the water here is fit for snorkeling, so grab some gear if you are looking to do some underwater exploration.

Since Raisins Clairs can be found inside a hot tourist destination, you might need to hunt to get a spot!
