  • A little corner of Reunion paradise, a beautiful beach, with a natural pool that can be very reassuring when you are a parent. All the shops nearby to spend a pleasant day at the beach.

  • the beach where you had to be seen in the past has become almost abandoned as a result of the recent attacks of man-eating sharks. the municipality has created an "artificial" swimming pool to protect children from the squalls. attendance is back to "a bit normal" and restaurants and outdoor activities are coming back to life. beach with blond sand not yet privatized.
