After spending a pleasant morning wandering through Hardelot, I wanted to lie on the beach and read. To do this, I went to the big beach a 5 minute walk from downtown. The long promenade seems fairly recent and original, dotted with small blue mushrooms. It is beautiful white cabinets with blue stripes (and not the house of a beetle), designed by Louis Cordonnier, perfectly aligned one after the other. Comfortably sitting in my towel, I felt fine sand and warm. Hearing the laughter of children I realized that I was sitting near the Pomme d'Api club and Papuans Club, where kids, always full of energy, can jump from trampolines or bouncy castles.
