Tucked away along a small inlet on the city's coast road is this little picture postcard fishing port. Stroll alongside the pointus
(small, brightly colored boats) and numerous seashore cabins before wandering through the picturesque narrow streets. Unsurprisingly this unique and very peaceful spot sheltered by the cliffs has provided inspiration for many artists. Also famous for its seafood restaurants, of which Chez Fonfon
is probably the best known, the cove gets its name from auffiers
or local craftsmen who used to make ropes and rigging.
