  • We come from Quebec, on vacation with my childhood friend, that she wonderful idea to have made us spend the day at this beautiful place. I confess that the people who do it by walking to get there, I personally find it perilous especially under the sun and with children. But we used the car since we had a reservation at the restaurant Le Château. Spotless place, the water is warm 77 degrees and clear. You can see beautiful fish. Wow I loved it.

  • The cove of Sormiou is beautiful and the sea is very beautiful but far too many people in high season, we are on top of the other. To access the coves, you have to take a short hike from the parking lot, about 1 hour walk, the path is marked by color markings, you have to have the eye, some are more or less erased. The trip is nice, but the return is hard, a lot of climb and in full sun. You have to go in the morning to get a place because the beach is very small.

  • WOAW! Really heaven on earth! Love this place so much. The clear and clean water the scenery in general is just breathtaking.
  • Nice place for a picnic, there's a parking (5€) just next to the beach. The road is a bit dangerous.
