In the owner's words:
"The beach: Words fail in describing it. . . . Iíve combed beaches around the world, from Fiji and Samoa and New Zealand to Majorca and Capri, in the Bahamas and the Windward and Leeward Islands of the Caribbean, and throughout Michigan, and the Carolinas, Florida and Oregon. There are a very few beaches that are the equal of this Parisian Island beach: the Otago Peninsula in the South Island of New Zealand, and the beaches on Grand Cayman Island and Montserrat in the Caribbean, and some others. But I have never encountered any beach that could justly be called its superior. Of course, beaches have different kinds of excellence.
This beach is long, open, and extended, like the very best beaches on Lake Michigan. The water here is as clear as crystal, and so pure that it is perfectly suitable for drinking. Rounded pebbles, every color of the rainbow, including agates if you know how to spot them, shine through at the waterís edge. The sand is white, fine and soft. The lake water is very cold, but very safe to swim in because of the gentleness of the incline, the total absence of urchins or other visible sea life or any human waste, and because of its cleanliness. The water is sweeter and better to drink than that from any well or municipal water system. (The lighthouse keepers at Parisian island told me long ago that although they had good running water from a well in their houses, they preferred to take their drinking water from the lake, and always did so.) The lake bottom on the gentle incline is fine sand, with occasional patches of pebbles, without weed, or tar, or debris..." Click here to read more of the Owner's description of Ile Parisienne
