Let's explore the caves !

The 'Rocher des Corbeaux', near 'Pierre plate' is a large oddly shaped granite mass, sourrounded by the sea at the high tide.
'Pierre plate' is another odd curiosity. This large stone gradually slopes down the cliff into the sea and is divided into three parts by two enormous grooves. When the ocean seeps into one of the narrow crevasses at half tide, thunder starts to rumble. It is also called 'Le Trou du Diable'.
