Geocache Description:


FRANÇAIS
========
Les Grands Sables, est une plage exceptionnelle située sur la côte nord-est de Groix. Exceptionnelle, elle l'est pour plusieurs raisons. Outre le fait que son sable est d'un très joli blanc, c'est surtout la seule plage convexe d'Europe de cette taille. Façonnée par les courants qui longent les côtes, cette plage qui s'avance dans la mer se déplace régulièrement et progressivement du sud vers le nord.
L'autre caractère exceptionnel de la plage est que l'on y trouve quelques veines de sable grenat. Un joli sable rouge issu du passé géologique de Groix que l'on rencontre en abondance sur d'autres plages au sud de celle-ci. Une belle idée de découverte et de balade.

La cache est située à proximité d'un chemin d'accès à la plage, dans les fougères.

ENGLISH
=======
The "Grands Sables" (Great Sands), is an exceptional beach located on the north-eastern coast of Groix. This beach is unique for several reasons : it is the only convex beach in Europe with such a size. The sand is also worked by the currents skirting the coasts, and the beach regularly and gradually moves from the south to the north.
The other exceptional fact of the beach are the garnet-red sand veins colouring the sand in a pinky way. That pretty red sand come from the geological past of Groix and can be found in abundance on the other beaches south from "les Grands Sables". A good idea for a beautiful walk.

The geocache is located near an access footpath to the beach, in the ferns.
