5 Best Beaches To Visit in the South of France

La douce France…the country in Europe has it all. Mountains, ski resorts, the Tour de France, a beautiful countryside, lavender and sunflower fields and not to forget: beaches at both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea. In this post, we will share with you the 5 best beaches in the French Riviera.

1 – Plage Notre Dame – Île de Porquerolles 1 – Plage Notre Dame – Île de Porquerolles This beach is located on an island near Toulon; it only takes 20 minutes to get there by ferry. Surrounded by eucalyptus trees, pine trees and crystal clear waters it is a little paradise.
2 – Plage des Marinières – Villefranche-sur-Mer Plage des Marinières is a famous one-kilometer long sandy beach in Villefranche-sur-Mer. If you are looking to the right, you will see the old town of Villefranche-sur-Mer, and at the end of the left side, there’s a wooded hill. It is not as crowded as most beaches near Nice. Moreover, another significant pro: you do not have to wear special shoes since the beach has coarse sand.
3 – Pampelonne Beach – Saint Tropez Pampelonne is the longest, most famous and most popular beach in the entire French Riviera. More than a four-kilometer (about 3 miles) stretch of the bright, soft sand lies along a beautiful curved bay, and it has everything one could dream about. Due to its popularity price rates are high.
4 – Port Grimaud Beach – Port Grimaud Port Grimaud beach is located just outside the city center.  The elongated goldish coastline will bring you a relaxed beach day. The beach is shallow and is slowly declining.

5 – Bay of Angels – Nice

The magnificent bay of Nice is a five kilometers beach of pebbles. Walking from one end of the beach to the other takes about an hour. At the promenade, there are many restaurants to have lunch, dinner or just a drink.
