Beaches Pointe du Payre

The beaches of the Pointe du Payre are reached by taking the road from Jard-sur-Mer past La Granges, having passed the beach of Ragounite one finally arrives at the small car park behind the beautiful beach of La Mines. During the season there are facilities on the beach and it also has lifeguards on duty There are hazardous currents just off shore make bathing very dangerous and great care should be taken when swimming.

North of the main beach is the nature reserve of the Pointe du Payre and the walks through the forest or along the cliff top are extremely rewarding. On reaching the northern end, one is at the entrance of the River Payre, and across the estuary is the beautiful beach of
Veillon , although the beaches on either side of the estuary are equally spectacular. The golden sands continue almost to the port of La Guitiere, this is a truly magnificent area. The estuary creates strong currents and eddies and great care should be taken while swimming.
