The Pointe Grenier Heritage Trail Duration 20 minutes
Take the stairs and follow the small path on the right, between the houses. Walk down to Reinette beach and continue along the shore. After Reinette beach, look out for the petrifying travertine spring, a rare geological curiosity.
Follow the path, almost with your feet in the water, until you come across the remains of Pointe Grenier's industrial past, in particular the three arches of the plaster kilns. Then reach the upper part of the point, which houses the restored remains of a military battery: chapel, powder magazine, barracks and watchtower. From the top, take time to admire the magnificent view over the Baie des Lecques and the Bec de l'Aigle.
In view of the instability of the cliff overhanging the current route of the Sentier du Littoral and the risk of falling boulders and subsidence, the Sentier du Littoral is closed for safety reasons on the section between Pointe Grenier and Pointe Fauconnière. The Sentier du Littoral will remain closed until a diversion on this section is implemented by the state services. For your own safety, we invite you to comply with the signage in place.
Return journey compulsory.
