The Shelter of l'Olivette

The kingdom of the "pointus"

This little sheltered bay offers a springboard into the past.

43 boats shelter here, many of which are the local traditional fishing boats known as “pointus”.

As it is managed by an association whose aim is to promote the charms of this little bit of paradise, it is still very similar to how this stretch of coast might have been at the beginning of the last century.
The association strives to conserve the look and feel of the place, by helping children discover its flora and fauna, restoring traditional boats, and organising a range of events (“pointu” races, fishing competitions).
