The path to the beach follows an enclosed, narrow valley whose slopes are covered with tall, dense scrub consisting of heather, rockrose and strawberry trees. An ephemeral stream runs through the valley to the beach during the rainy months. The beach is huge, both to the north and to the south, and is very peaceful. It is mostly frequented by surfers and recreational fishermen. Here, the schist cliffs are covered with rockrose whose aromatic oils gleam in the sunshine and fill the air with their characteristic scent. As you walk along the beach, you can observe the rocky cliff walls with their tortuous and deformed layers, bearing witness to the incredible forces to which these ancient rocks have been subjected.
