Port-Mélite beach is liked by families : easily accessible (even for people with reduced mobility) and watched by lifeguards, it’s a good place to spend a summer afternoon with children. The parking lot and the little portable stores selling refreshments are bonuses too !
The stretch of sand is wide and nice whatever the tide. There are boats moored a few yards from the shore. Port-Mélite also is one of the beaches where canoes and kayaks are available for rent. Indeed, if the weather allows it, paddling around will prove a great experience, whether you’re going towards the near Grands Sables beach or the other way around towards the Port-Tudy harbor.
As the Grands Sables beach keeps moving west, you can easily walk there from Port-Mélite at low tide, passing by the rocks separating the two beaches.
