Choose your place for great relaxation under the sun, to swm, or just to have a drink in the pleasant setting of the beachside restaurant. However, all this is subject to availability, in view of the crowds in this popular getaway.

Iconic golf course that any enthusiast needs to play....wonderful experience. Club house facilities are a bit tired compared to say Mont Choisy and probably expected the course to present more views from more holes (probably looks better from the air). But I’m being picky to...More
