We walked from town along the beach thinking we might be able to reach the corner at the rocks but then found some stairs, which became a path, leading all the way up to the main road, then back into town.
Great views across the bay, getting better the higher up we were.
Probably really busy down on the beach in summer but a perfect walk on a sunny winter’s day.

Following the site reviews, we went for a walk in the place. Amazing place in its beauty! We got to the parking on the side of the road and then there are signs and stairs to the beach. The most stunning beach, simple route. Worth a visit!

Few South of France beaches have the magical character of the Theoule-sur-Mer main beach, culminating in the rocky crags of the Pointe de l'Aiguille. The nearest road is high above the beach, the local railway line out of sight and sound as it dives inland through a series of tunnels.

After the sandy main beach, with its underwater nature trail, a trio of coves, one with a spectacular natural arch, exist behind the cliff. They can be accessed by a pleasant windy trail up and over the cliff next to the "Aiguille Restaurant."

Choose the first cozy cove,a half-circle embraced by the rocks, or the second, much larger with its arch and high cliff from which local lads will jump or dive to entertain the watchers. The third necessitates a scaramble down the next cliff face. This is why it's often deserted and also a venue for the local nudists.

Never too crowded, Theoule's beaches remain something of a secret destination, most tourists venturing no further than Juan-les-Pins or Cannes. Long may that remain the case!

Never been to the South of France before so didn't quite know what to expect but this beach was absolutely gorgeous. We spent a day sitting in the sunshine looking at the most beautiful views of the sea AND the snow capped alps with a backdrop just as beautiful, absolutely charming. We had lunch right on the edge of the beach of salads crusty french bread and delicious wine. What a gem this little place is. Parking was very easy and equally as easy to get to. 10/10

A pretty beach but full of people when we were there (August 2018). Access is via steps up and over the rock that separates the beach from the rest of the coast towards Theoule-sur-Mer - it's a short climb, but steep in places. The beach itself is large pebbles leading to spiky rocks approaching the water. Be sure to take water shoes to protect your feet. The water was fairly choppy for our visit, despite weather being pleasant. We did some snorkeling but the water was stirred up and silty so didn't see anything. There's nowhere to buy drinks or snacks once you start the climb up the steps, so grab something at the beach over if you need it.

It's a lovely cove, sea is crystal clear and the fish must know it's a protected park as there are hundreds. Take a chair unless you like lying on large stones , which with a thick towel was actually quite comfortable.

You can reach La Pointe de l'Aiguille from the main road (D6098) and from down in Théoule by walking Promenade André Pradayrol. It's a fairly small, rocky and steep Pointe with lots of forested paths up the hill. Small bays, with often no, or very little, people even in high season. Some shore lines have unfortunately been made private, but still there is possibilities to find a secluded bay on your own.

This used to be an excellent public beach but now much of the beach has been made private. The restaurant on the beach has changed too. While the food is quite good., it has become quite expensive. The water, though, was very clear and there is a fantastic view of the bay. You should bring swim shoes as there are rocks as you enter the water and the water is shallow for a number of yards.

We like this place for the same reasons many reviewers do.

There is actually a little marine park with marked areas you can swim to. (It's not for little chlidren). Most serious snorkellers will bring their booties I would recommend neoprene shoes or sailing booties as the entrance to the water is really stony and a pain to enter ,as it's too shallow to swim from the shore,

The beach itself is reached along a pleasant promenade that starts at a parking area in town at the bottom of the hill. Come early as the parking fills up and goes all the way up the steep hill above the town, even on weekdays in the summer.

The promenade is dotted with little cafes and there is a nice restaurant on the beach. Not gourmet but solid snacks and coffee.

Can't fairly assess the food as I misunderstood the menu/waiter and ordered seared beef, which was far too rare for my palate, but nothing wrong with the dish. The location is fabulous on a remote beach some distance from the centre. They will run you there either in golf buggy orboat I believe. Would be excellent lunch venue.
