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

Very clean and on a long stretch of sandy beach. I highly recommend a trip here. You will not be disappointed!

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

Huge clean beach. Sea clean but can be choppy. hardly ever crowded, but kite surfers can be annoying. Parking horrendously expensive.

Following winter storms Espiguette has changed. 600+ parking places have been lost at the naturist end. Cap Sud has been relocated and is not on the naturist beach so it is no longer possible for naturists to hire transats and parasols. The first part of the naturist beach is wider although it is now 250 metre walk from the car... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a slice of sheer Mediterranean sunshine! The beach was big, clean and the water was high quality- we both enjoyed a swim. Despite being the height of summer, we were more than able to find a place to spread out. Fab.

We went to this beach most days and enjoyed our visits there. The water wasn't very clear but that didn't deter most of the bathers who all seemed to go into the water at some stage. There were virtually no toilet facilities on the whole beach so make sure you come prepared!!

Used to be quiet, family, naturist beaches. Now it seems to be the usual commercial beach exploited by the local community, with all the 'services', boating, surfing, eating etc., and expensive parking facilities.
