there is no beach, but the rock pools are good and the marina with its
waterside cafes and restaurants is a very pleasant and interesting place
to wander around and perhaps do a spot of fishing from the breakwater.
There is also a good golf course just behind the port where you can play
a round and hire clubs if you have not brought your own. The main
attraction however is the beach at Veillon, just south of the town.
North of the port at Bourgenay all the way to the Point de Tanchette the
coastline is dominated by low rocky cliffs with just the occasional
small patch of sandy or shingle beach mainly around the 'Ans de Coyola'.
Though not a true beach-lovers paradise it is a very attractive area
with great walks, spectacular views and a feeling of being at one with
nature. It is an area where you can find peace and tranquillity before
the more commercial beaches just a few kilometres to the north.
