Plage du Helleux

Plage du Helleux Review

Except on Sunday, this long stretch of wild beach—framed by dramatic cliffs—is often completely deserted in the morning or early afternoon. By 4 pm, though, you might find 70 or so young surfers. Many locals take their young children here, but use caution with your own, because the current can be strong. The beach has no facilities of its own, but you can get lunch and drinks at the Hotel Eden Palm. To get here, follow the signs to Hotel Eden Palm and pass the hotel; the beach is down the dirt road to the right. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; partiers; surfing; swimming; walking.
