Our opinion on the Canouvie Beach

Adresse of the Canouvie Beach : Pointe du Canouvié 83140 Ile des Embiez

There is a succession of small sandy and pebbly coves northeast of Ile des Embiez and west of the tip of the Canouvié. It is unfrequented (we are on the less touristic side of the island) and bordered by a pleasant pine forest; there are several places where one can swim without any difficulty. The view out of the port of Embiez and of the coast at the port of Brusc is very pleasant. Toilets are available in the port.

To get to these beaches from the port of Embiez, turn left and walk along the docks. At the end, turn left and then take the path leading outside the hotel. The first coves are behind it.
