Great beach for a long walk just outside the town. As we were here on 11 November, we were not sunbathing or swimming but lovely white sandy beach.

I had no idea this little town even existed before coming upon it on the way to another site I wanted to visit. It's a lovely place and during summertime it attracts many tourists. It's small and located at the mouth of the Little (Petite)...More

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.

This is a nice sand beach, a bit overcrowded, but there are plenty of place for everybody. I would strongly recommend you to arrive there asap, because parking could be a issue later ...
