There are 30 visitor mooring buoys which you pick up and take a long line ashore. It is worth going ashore and walking up the hill for the amazing views. Not to be missed if you are sailing in this... more »
We parked at Port-Miou to go to Port-Pin beach, which is a 20 minute walk from the parking lot. We arrived at 9am and were among the first people on the beach. We were with a 3 and 6 year old who were able to walk the whole way to the beach, some parts were challenging but it was ok. The beach is small but the views are so beautiful! It is a pebble beach so I recommend using water shoes, and to do the hiking is better to have tennis than sandals. The sea is a big pool of clear water, you can see the fish around you. The beach ended up crowed but if you find a nice spot close to the water you have always front views of the see. Enjoy!
Really beautiful but a bit crowded in summer. However pretty close to the town and the hike is really easy.
