The Virgin's Rock

Interesting
It was Napoleon III's idea to hollow out this stone, which is surround by reef. He also had it joined to the cliff by means of a wooden bridge. Today, it is linked to the coast by a metal footbridge made at the Eiffel workshops. It is inaccessible in rough weather as big waves cover the road surface. There is a beautiful walk along the slightly sloping ramps shaded by tamarisks, as you continue towards Basta Rock and then on to Grande Plage.
