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.

extra long extra wide all natural white sand beach along side sand dunes... Incredibly picturesque, great to jog or to sun tan, isolate yourself and spend a day "au naturel"

We have three children and a beach with sand is a must for us. Espiguette Beach has plenty of sand for building castles. There were lots of people right at the car park entrance. Just walk a short way down and you will find more space. If you stay between the car park entrances there are less people. (People seem... More

Fabulous stretch of unspoilt beach on the opposite side of the bay from Montpellier. Need a car to get there and we ran into jams getting there on a sunny summer weekend. But definitely worth the bother. There is a beach restaurant Les Pieds Nus which very good on the piece we went to, by chance it has to be... More

I agree with the post “Directions to the Beaches at Montpellier” but the bus now leaves from a different place. You still need to take tram line 1 but get off at the penultimate stop "Place de France" to catch the 106 bus, rather than the earlier "Port Marianne" stop as that post says. I wandered around "Port Marianne" looking... More
