A lovely beach in Camarque - when you need to take a rest after making a boat tour or visiting the ornitologhical park. Right in the centre of the village. Really good for young children - fine sand, not too crowdy. But no umbrellas for rent - that is why I gave just four stars.

If you saw the movie " The Da Vinci Code " , Saintes Maries de la Mer is the place Maria arrive to Europe to start her new life.... Today, It's a small city, with great beach. The main beach is at the city, walking from the center, but you can drive 5 minutes and be at the quiet send... More

Beautiful white sand and a myriad of little shops along the font. It can get a bit busy though from the middle of the day toward the evening.

We have read about this place in a local guide. It presented it self as an unspoiled place, where the local gipsy population had preserved their way of life. So far from what met us. In reality this place is a family beach resort, like a million others. Beaches, french fries and coca cola.

Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer beach is a pretty place to visit. Even though it was an extremely windy day, the beach still looked very inviting. The water was a lovely shade of blue and the bright sunshine created a a very attractive glistening effect on the surface of the water.

Since I'm from Hawaii I always look for place which is natural and not crowded with tourist. And we found beach and place like that. If you want peace and good service this is place to be.

Sparrows and seagulls like to fly around looking for food. There are also a few shrimps swimming in the shallow waters and some curious cone-like shells, some of them still with the crab inside, running around underwater! The sand is divided into small bays by a series of wind and wave-breakers,which give some shelter on windy days and also allow... More

Beautiful beach, and even in the height of the season not too crowded - HOWEVER - there are nudists, who enjoy flaunting themselves. Not a very pleasant experience.

visited the beach in mid-May. Beautiful and peaceful, still too early for Summer crowds. Quaint town but pretty touristy. A neighbor to the bulls and the marsh lands of the Camargue. More fisherman in the sea than bathers.

Fairly quiet beach off season, rolling in waves and the colours of it all are quite breathtaking. Coming in from the Camargue area with the White horses and the Black Bulls you cannot believe it can be more beautiful but it is? Kite flying and walking along the area are most popular and on the seafront are many restaurants, many... More
