You can probably see women busy with salt production in the villages we float by and fishermen throw their nets in the water, or others who are busy with shrimp fishing.

This lovely environment leads to the unspoiled beach of La Bouche du Roi. The place where the river floats into the sea.

After a picnic at the beach you can relax, swim or play some games like badminton, jeu de boules or football.
