Description

Cette pointe sauvage est particulièrement exposée aux vagues par fort mistral ; le vent a tailladé, sculpté, poli les schistes.
Royaume des goélands, elle offre une belle perspective sur les falaises de la côte S et l'îlet de la Gabinière d'un côté, sur l'île de Bagaud et Porquerolles de l'autre.
