This is a beautiful, quaint, small town and beach. It is also very popular and finding parking is a challenge. There are a number of beach segments and fishing areas. There's also a bullring.

Big beach with clean water and few people in middle of July. Be careful free parkings accepts only vehicles with maximum 1.90m As we drove a Mercedes Viano we could not enter and had to park along the main street or go to the parking for caravans which is not free.

Busy seaside town, cute narrow streets, loads of choice for restaurants. We visited on Bastille day when a horse demonstration/exhibition was taking place so very busy. Towards the end of town, much quieter, nice restaurant overlooking the harbour. Clean sandy beach, shallow water, it was windy so some big waves rolling in. The church is worth a look around as...

We drove a bit west from town to a more remote area of the beach, but the waves and water temp were just right for our daughters to play and splash on the beach. The sand is lighter in color (thus less hot on the feet) than the other beaches we visited on our vacation. We say in front of... More

We visited Saintes Maries de la Mer as a day trip from Arles and we were totally satisfied. Cutest little town with beaches by the sea. We had a beautiful beach day then got some ice cream and wandered through the town. They were running the bulls right through the streets to the arena while we were there which was... More

Popular series of beaches each partly enclosed by rocks. Whilst we were there they were swept daily.

The beaches here are lovely fine sand beaches which is nice after sitting on the stone beaches. There are quite a few different beaches in the area to choose from some right in town and others out toward the national park find one you like and have a swim .

Nice beach but it can definitely get busy, if you want somewhere quieter there are private beaches to rent at (I know our hotel Villa de la Mer had this option), which might be worthwhile!

Not a huge beach, but nice sand, calm surf and not very busy at all. It would not be a destination beach, but if you are in the area, no reason to drive elsewhere.
