BARNEVILLE-CARTERET

Cap de Carteret

Rocky Cateret Headland looks over Hatainville Dunes, offering an exceptional vantage point from which to view the Channel Islands. High on the headland’s plateau, heathland covered with yellow-flowering gorse is home to the bright and furtive Dartford warbler, while the raven and the peregrine falcon amuse themselves around the steep-sided schist and sandstone cliffs where the annual rock rose grows. At the lighthouse, recently restored low dry-stone walls help preserve the site and guide visitors along the cliff tops of the Côte-des-Isles.
