Enjoyed a walk along the promenade and Jetty after lunch. The carousel restored from 1900 is interesting. It is the only double story carousel we have seen. The views of the bay and surrounds are good from the jetty.

Walked this pier after lunch not very long but a nice view of the beach and the Ferris wheel. Benches along the way you can sit and watch people stroll by

It's a jetty that sticks out into the sea from the land. The beach between this and the other jetty is a beautiful sandy affair, if not a tad small. However this jetty and the beach and the promenade are all very nice to walk along and enjoy, especially in the sunshine. There is some interesting architecture in the road... More

come here after a hectic day, after dinner, relax, enjoy one of the freshest and cleanest airs in the world, coming thousands of km straight over the Atlantic ocean into your lungs; observe the subtle light changes, hear the noise of the beach and the city going close to zero and meditate.

Ideal jumping off point for a tour of the Bassin after lunch. There are a wide selection of routes and operators and the views of the Parc des Huitres and the fishing villages are well worthwhile. Word of warning - if you do not speak fluent French, ask if there is an English translation. Our French is OK but not... More

Enjoyable view of the boat traffic and people boarding and leaving ferries and sight seeing tours. Frequently music and singing performers are there. Benches to sit and enjoy a crème glacé and survey beach side restaurants.
