I am not a big fan about fossils but I give them credit to have 2 ginkgo trees in front of them! For that they ARE qualified for their specialty for ginkgo is the living fossil. They have different prices for different accessibility of their resources. I chose the cheapest one so only had a walk on the beach to admire the cliff and rock. They have a short walking trail and outdoor activities for kids. Their service and activity guide were both in french, I didn’t check if they can speak English. They have a nice cafeteria that offers good clam chowder.

It's an UNESCO world heritage site. They have good bilingual guided tours, have stuff to entertain little kids. Not a huge site but quite interesting.
