France Beaches

The Beautiful Beaches of France

France is a country filled with beaches to satisfy any traveler.

If you want to visit a beach in a cozy fishing village. Try Sete. The rows of painted houses are perfect to create a mood of romance for any weekend getaway with your special o­ne. But, the main attraction is Mont Saint Clair, which offers a stunning view of the whole place.

Looking for trendier beaches? La Croisette has many, even a public option, Plage du Casino, located near the Palais des Festivals, that includes a tiny island!

Visiting Montpellier? Make a trip to the beach of La Grande Motte. Hiking trails, a water park, and golf and tennis facilities make this the a wonderful destination for a day of fun. But, the flamingos, bulls, and horses in the nearby Camargue push it over the top!

Want to try swimming without your suit? Leucate Plage, o­n the Mediterranean coast near Perpignan, is a fantastic nude beach with tranquil waters, perfect for families.

Beach Nice
St. Tropez
For French Riviera beaches that offer immense beauty at a lower price, try those of Nice. These beaches rank with the top in all of France, but be sure to wear flip-flops to deal with the galets, rock marbles that cover the ground.

If you are rich and famous, visit the hip Plage de Tahiti in St. Tropez. Visit the dining establishments that line this beach to eat food from world-renowned chefs and a simmering social scene. Cobblestone streets, galleries, and the excellent nightlife make this the perfect place to spend a honeymoon or just enjoy life.

Trendy or cozy, France has it all!
