Adresse of the Port York Beach : D30A 56360 Le Palais

Port York Beach in Belle Ile en Mer (Le Palais) is a hundred meter long beach, which was formed at the mouth of a wide valley draining a river that feeds a marsh behind the beach. Swimming is safe. The only inconvenience at times can be an important contribution of seaweed, but no unpleasant smell was reported. Well sheltered, the place is a natural refuge for many boats (kayaks, dinghies, tenders), but also a variety of wildlife: swimming crabs, sea urchins, abalone, oystercatcher magpies, etc.

To go there, nothing simpler: the beach is located along the coastal road. Some places are available all along; otherwise there is a car park in the pasture opposite.

Attributed to Vauban (and yes, he was also in the circular as well), it is different from "the fort of the earthen Gros Rocher ", a few steps away. If the second one is always accessible, this one is only accessible at low tide.
