Easy access across the hotel Pierre & Vacances but a long paddle along the cliff.
Another access on the other side of the bay is harder to find. Nethertheless, less than 5 minutes after hotel Pierre et Vacances entry road, on the main road (direction St François), you can find a sign indicating "anse à la barque". take it ! After few hundred of meters you will find some houses and a path leading you to the bay.
A good spot for beginners and advanced surfers, many surf schools go there.
Many different people surf here: kids, tourists, locals. Good atmosphere.

Beautiful spot - I surfed there last year.
A really beautiful place there you can see some old guys that they are fishing during you're surfing !
A great spot for me because the wave is not too nmuch powerfull cause i a m a beginner !
But take care of the peak after the wave it can be nasty if you don't see it !!!
