“Pointe du Milier is not a beach.

Presumably you mean one of the little north facing beaches just west of Pointe du Milier. Pors Peron perhaps, 2km to the south west, where people body surf sometimes?

[Editor notes. These have been resolved. Pors Peron added. The user seems incorrect, there is another beach break at the beach directly west of Pointe du Milier]”
