There are a few picnic tables along the beach, and you can have a BBQ. You need to bring your own barbecue, or do it as the locals do on weekend, just put your charcoal into the sand.

You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas, snorkeling gear, boards and rigs, kayaks, and a paddle boat. Pat also gives instructions for windsurfing beginners, and has a motorboat and a trimaran to charter.

Le Galion is also a popular hangout for surfing, kite-boarding, and windsurfing enthusiasts. In front of the former "Le Galion Hotel" surfing is perhaps best because of the trade winds coming along the Atlantic coast.
