Our opinion on the Falaise Beach

Adresse of the Falaise Beach : Av du Gal de Gaulle

The Falaise beach of Arz island is the first beach you discover when you get off the boat, so it's the most frequented beach on the island at low tide. It's also the longest, but in our opinion not the most interesting. Perhaps it's because of the lack of trees, the presence of quite a few pebbles and algae in certain areas, or the fact that you see waves of tourists passing between the port and the village? However, the place has its attractions: you can see Ile-aux-Moines, oyster basins, a windmill and a tide mill, typical boats of the Gulf... The sand is impeccable in places. But hey, everyone has their own tastes. The small and large coves to the east of Arz seem more interesting to us. No doubt the Falaise will be the occasion for a last swim before taking the boat back since it's a mandatory passage. Note that the showers are not free.
