Good views of the bay and beaches from the jetty. No entrance fee. Not worth making a separate trip for but worth checking out for 15 minutes if in town.

At the entrance to the pier are footprints of French yachtsmen, (similar to the walkway of stars in Hollywood). I don't know the pier's length, but it goes out a fair distance, enough to give good panoramic views of the seafront.

As you would expect this is a pretty promo made into the sea. Nothing more, nothing less. Not great for small kids, but did enable them to see the boats.
