Cote Piane Cliffs


Cote Piane Cliffs

Sunsets on Cote Piane are one of the most exciting experiences you can have at Cape St. Andrew.

A lunar, almost science-fiction-like landscape, a completely evocative sunset setting that is reached from the left side of St. Andrew's beach by walking on rocks carved and shaped by the waves. The peculiar cliff, composed of orthoclase crystals embedded in granitic magma, is a must-see for those who want to discover the most spectacular corners of the island. Being part of St. Andrew's Beach, the Cote Piane enjoy all the services offered by the beach.
