The beach here is gently shelving, making it very suitable for small children. At one end of the bay there is a tree-top adventure playground for older children and adults. Close behind the boulevard you will find the village centre of Saint Georges, rich in narrow streets, charming boutiques and a pretty square with a typical French atmosphere.
