English (Translate this text in English): When travelling along the A9 motorway péage, take junction 40. After about 2km, turn right onto the D429 for the train station. About 100m after the train station, there's a sharp bend to the right and at the end of the bend, there's a lane "Chemin de Pitchinos", go down that lane. At any junctions, keep left until you cross over the entrance to the lagoon, then take the first right and you're on the beach. Don't be put of if the road is terrible qualithy!

English (Translate this text in English): There's often a very strong and gusty east wind created by a natural venturi of the mountains. This wind is offshore so you'll often have to go to the lagoon at La Palme. Dispite the gusty wind and small waves, this remains one of the most popular places to kite in the region
