Since we're from Orange County, this cute little beach town reminded us of our beaches. Commercial, touristy, lots of restaurants and souvenir shops. We enjoyed a break from gritty Arles with a long walk and a good seafood lunch in this very pleasant resort beach...More

Lovely day out for the kids and family next to a historic town. There was a nice restaurant on the beach. With plenty of space for the family this was a good beach.

The beach runs right through the town but out towards the east you can walk for a half hour or so and find places where your nearest neighbour is 20m or more away. You can drive there too, although they charge for parking, but it...More

Dark sand, little cove created artificially with wave breakers. Excellent and popular place, no room to change but excellent showers. Sea was clean. Easy to park around

We headed for the beach with our teenagers. Had all sorts of French beaches over the years, this one was fantastic! Head out of town (West) a little. Here we parked up for free all day which is a bonus. The beach was totally sandy...More
