Fodor's Review

This secluded strip just before the tip of Pointe des Châteaux is the island's only nude beach. (Technically, this is not allowed by French law.) Small bar–cafés are in the parking area, but it's still best to bring some water, snacks, and beach chairs, because there's no place to rent them. What you do have is one of the coast's most dramatic landscapes; looming above are rugged cliffs topped by a huge crucifix. When approaching St-François Marina, go in the direction of Pointe des Châteaux at the roundabout and drive for about 10 minutes. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); toilets. Best for: solitude; partiers; sunset; swimming; walking.
