Outdoor Activity · Hidden Gem
Cool off in the calm waters and relax on the pristine white sand at Pointe Faula. The beach is protected by a coral reef, and the shallow, warm water stretches out for around 300 m (984 ft), providing a perfect environment for young children to play in. The exposed beach can receive strong winds at times, which makes it popular with wind and kite surfers. Sit back under the palm trees or at a beachside restaurant and marvel at the surfers battling the wind. To visit Pointe Faula on your trip to Le Vauclin, use our Le Vauclin visit planning site.

  • I had never seen so many kites. Wow! There were people swimming in the ocean. Others were fishing in the ocean. There were also a lot of boats. That was quite unique. A must see!  more »

  • Could be a very enjoyable beach, especially with the cozy bars around and the kite-surfing possibilities offered. Unfortunately, the recurring presence of the sargassum seaweed makes it a horrendous sight to see, but especially smell. The 'infestation' goes on for miles and miles in both directions and a few kilometers into the Atlantic. Make sure you inform yourself before booking accommodation around it, to be aware of the presence of the rotting seaweed as it truly is a holiday breaker.
  • To walk on white backgrounds and have foot far, far away.... Beware, seaweed invades this beautiful site!
