Cap-Bon-Ami beach

Symbolizing the battle between land and sea, the Forillon cliffs rise in the distance.

  • Sand or stones

    Eroded cliff at Forillon.

    When they hit a cliff, wind, waves and rain chip off tiny pieces of stone. Water flowing over the cliff walls enters the cracks, freezes and thaws, thus fragmenting the rock into large boulders.

    Once they’ve been shaped and carried by the sea, the rocks accumulate at the foot of the cliffs, where they will form beaches. Beaches born of sandstone cliffs, which are brittle, form grains of sand, while those formed from limestone produce pebbles.
