My wife is a huge fan of the "trip to the beach" and normally I dread the time spent just lying around. This time though I have to say I enjoyed it. First of all the beach itself was clean and (from what I could tell) 100% sand, no pebbles here that lead to you hopping and skipping your way... More

Great beach, with plenty of room and even a bar - serving excellent mojitos, fyi. However, avoid accessing it via the camping l'espiguette complex, as they charge for parking, relieve you of your ID and there's a long long walk to get to the sea. I gather there is parking further down the track near the bar, so try that!

parking is 6 Euro per day, even if you only stay for an hour, which I find a bit annoying. If you walk a bit to the left you will arrive at the nudist beach which is less crowded. Fine sand, no snacker but pople walking around selling drinks and ice.

Wild and beautiful - two things that attract me to this beach. Although the Mediterranean high rise apartments are still in view from this beach, you really feel away from it all. Beautiful sand and calm waters, bliss.

Espiguette beach is one of the nicest places on the French Mediterranean. If you love natural beaches surrounded by pine forests you fall in love with spot. I’m pleased to see a private beach here that respects totally our environment and offers activities like paddle. We have been 4 times to this beach, the staff are friendly, the mats are... More

Nice beach if you want a bit more space, for kites, running about, of just some more room to spread out. Nudist beach is about 1 mile to the left- be careful if you weren't expecting it! You do have to pay for the car park but worth it for the day and there is a loo as well as... More

2 good days on this beach. 6 Euros for the parking. Had some filled baguettes from beach cafe one day and had a Macdonalds nearby on the other. Nice to walk along. Daughters shocked when we came across nudist section, initially, but soon coped. Good sand and plenty of space. Only downside was traffic queue on leaving due to roundabout... More

I have known this beach since the 1970s and happily it has not changed apart from the improved access by car and parking "payant" .... but it is worth it to get easy access to 20 kms of sand backed by uspoilt sand dunes and then the wonderful wilderness of the Camargue, except in the remotest parts of the world...

We visited Montpellier this August. Great dynamic city, many young people and great historic city. Definitely recommend to visit it. We had just one problem, we could find people, who spoke english and help us with some directions or explain to us about the ticket that we needed so that we can go to the beach. Initially our idea was... More

This is one of the best beaches I have been on in this part of France. The sand is white and the sea is crystal clear. This beach has become very popular since I last visited way back in the 90s. They now charge one to get a parking space. However it is well worth a visit.
