Our opinion on the Little Beach

Adresse of the Little Beach : Av Jean Cristau 85800 Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie

Little Beach is located at the port of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie and Josephine tower, and offers a pleasant sandbank facing south. There is a former pond on the right side where one can swim at low tide with a few small coves on the right. Swimming is not supervised and it is quite difficult to park.

To get to this beach from the center of the resort, go to the harbour (north). Turn left at the crossing. The beach is 300 meters away (the lighthouse is a good benchmark).
