We are considering a 1 week holiday at Victoria Beachcomber in Pointe aux Piments. We've read mostly good/excellent reviews but I have one burning question... the water/swimming/rocks? I've emailed the hotel and they've mentioned that the 'lagoon' is not as deep as at Troux aux Biches and there are rocks/stones but you will find a swimming spot. I do not wish to 'stand around' in the 'sea'. My friend who is going with is a agile swimmer and like to SWIM in the sea. I am so worried that this will ruin our holiday? Is it possible that once you are 'over the rocks', that you can swim deeper into the sea or is it just a lagoon? He doesn't mind swimming 500 meters into the sea to get to a spot where it's deep enough to swim.
THe hotel has also suggested that we can take a bus to Trou aux Biches for the day but then your All board means very little and I don't want to pay a fortune to get to another beach.
We are realistic regarding the rocks and will buy 'water shoes' but how deep is the water really? If I fall off a paddle boat, is the rocks 1 meter underneath me and I will land on the rocks?
Thanks so much in advance!
