Lovely clean beaches with series of stone breakwaters giving protection from waves and currents. Plenty of space to spread out and free parking right next to the beach area.

Relaxing beach for families with young kids. Current wasn't too strong while we were there and water temperature was fine. Well, we are from Belgium...

The beach across from Le Dauphine Bleu is divided by jetties and quite shallow for a long way. The water is warm and the beach sand is cleaned every morning. Plenty of restaurants a short walk away and bathrooms spotted along the beach.

The beaches are clean and good maintained. Freshwater showers and public toilets are installed and in good shape. Beaches have no beach bar which is due to the close distance to village not necessary. Parking might be a hustle since there are plenty of holiday...More

The beach has fine sand - not as white as we get in Australia - and is fairly well protected. It's very popular with families and others. There were a number of topless bathers when we were there but they don't get a second glance....More

We very much enjoyed our day at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer beach. I can imagine it would get very busy in August (we visited on a Wednesday in July), there was lots of parking in official car parks and parking spaces on the nearby streets. The beach was...More

Unfortunately the traditional cottages along the beach are up for demolition. It would be nice to keep them as a legacy of the past.
