If you follow the D122 from La Pointe de la Grande Vigie southwards, you will follow the ?route of the cliffs?. All along this road you?ll have great views every now and then. One of the highlights of this part is the point with the terrifying name the Porte d?Enfer (Gate of Hell).

The Porte d?Enfer is a shallow bay that is in connection with the sea. At the outskirts of the bay the sea is still very wild; you can see the water banging into caves, smashing the water high through the air. Inside the bay though the water is pretty calm and amazingly blue. I visited the Gate to Hell on a very bad day, with lots of clouds and rain and still the water was almost turquoise.

You have to pay attention to find this place as it is just at one of the many parking spots along the road. If you are not sure, just stop at every single one of them: the views are never disappointing any way.

Address: Porte d'Enfer, Le Moule
Directions: Between Le Moule and Pointe de la Grande Vigie, along the D122
