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

This beach is very attractive off season. There are not too many people. It's great to walk and watch the kite surffers. The light gets very beautiful in the setting sun. And the town with all the facilities is just nearby.

I stayed here for 4 days in my motorhome October 2011. as part of a 4 month Europe tour this was one of my highlights. My son and I went to Loui's ranch and went out on a ride by the lake and along the beach. I tell you now it don't get much better. The weather was still warm... More

Sea calm but waves built up later in day which was good for jumping,body surfing etc. We travelled from near Aigues Mortes everyday for a week as it was so pleasant. Took a walk into the harbour town later in day. Parking was a... More

A long sandy white beach and the town is packed with restaurants most empty at the time of the year we were there; would not like to come in peak summer, must be a mad house and the roads are very local D roads.

I did not swim, but the beach was decent and easy to access from the town center. Supposed to be a topless beach 3km to the East!

Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer was just beautiful! The beaches were lovely and there were many fantastic restaurants overlooking the water. There were also many wonderful small shops offering locally made items including wine, salts, herbs, and soaps. Would have loved to have been able to stay longer.
