Nothing special but really nice scenery. The beach is great and the view from the top of the cliff is just beautiful. Worth hiking there for a while!

Beautiful clear water, amazing scenery. Picture postcard. Plenty of parking. We parked in the town and walked to the beach about 10/15 minutes.

Lovely place. When will the French learn to clean up after their dogs; it is like walking in a minefield.

Whenever we are in the area we head to the Cap for a seafood lunch or dinner and we are never disappointed. And it comes with good service and a lovely view.

Visited the area at the beginning of May, beautiful beaches and stunning scenery on the walk around Cap Carteret, on a clear day can see many of the Channel Islands.

Walk for miles hardly seeing anyone, what more can you ask! Not sure what it would be like in season, but in June and September it is bliss!

This place is just so beautiful - vast beaches and tranquil. One of my most favourite places. On a clear day you can see Jersey. Whatever time of the year you visit it is spectacular
