Pointe du Bec or tip of the beak. A defence running from Plage de Bonne Source to plage de la Baule. Several large bunkers were used here and the whole defence was being upgrading its 5cm KwK guns from R600b open emplacements to casemated R635 and an SK/Doppelschartenstand (not yet finished). That I could see nothing remains of these.
