Loved this place ... nice for a winter walk but would love to come back in summer. Great views. Nicer than the other side of the basin. Would like to have tried chez hortense famous mussels but it’s closed until March.

Went here on a beautiful sunny day, the beach north of island‘s tip is just beautiful. Unfortunately due to safety issues you can’t go to the tip itself.

On a hot hot day leaving early from our hotel in Pessac. Only 40 mins drive. Parking not a problem and free. Visiting local oyster farm fishing areas. If you want time on the beach bay side then the morning is best.

I stayed at Truc Vert, so I went to the wild, open, beach everyday. From reading the comments here I expected something more amazing, but it was good, but the same as any other beach there. You don't get a feeling you are at a...More

The dunes and beach were closed to the public on May 1st 2016 and there's no sign that they're planning to reopen them. They say there's a risk of collapsing of the dune. I took some great pictures there back in 2014... I was looking...More
