So, at the end of the rock beach (or the start depends from which way you enter) or at the marina, you'll see this rustic statue. It's a sweet gesture, but they need to do something to keep it safe.

It's an old statue located at the end of the rock beach. I don't know who Dupleix is but must be someone important, that they made a statue of him.

The 2.88 m tall statue of Dupleix stands at the southern end of the park. This is part of rock beach only and not a separate view point as such

The place looks bright in the evening, and the statue adds grace to it. After the restoration works the statue has regained the glory.
