Anse de Colombier
This is a natural and secluded area that adventure seeking visitors would love. Since this spot can only be reached either by on foot or by boat, it is better and easier to go through the path after Flamands Beach, near the Auberge de la Petite Anse, instead of taking the hilltop in Colombier, which is a 20-minute hike down, and a lot harder when coming back up.
