The Western route is equally exciting as the others. Flic-en-Flac is well-known for its amazing public beach and touristic environment. A short trip will get you to Albion where there is also a public beach but we recommend that you visit “Albion Lighthouse”. You will not only be able to have a great view of this popular lighthouse but also enjoy the beautiful view ahead of you. This spot is also ideal for admiring the sunset.
