Fantastic beach with easy parking. Very popular with windsurfers and kite surfers due to the constant wind. Take a shelter or windbreaks to make you stay on little more comfortable.

Big, clean sandy beach which can get a little busy, but is large enough to take the crowds. Parking is pretty good. If you can’t get a spot in the town, there’s a big car park just outside (bit of a walk, mind). Toilets on...More

This is a really nice big expanse of beach. Plenty of room for everyone - not over-crowded at all. Lots of reasonably priced restaurants to choose from. Drinks are expensive though - €2.50 for a regular size bottle of coke 😕. Parking is free and...More

This beach was well worth the journey from Montpellier. A scenic, relaxed and family friendly beach away from the crowds. If you can get to Le Franqui, you won't regret it. Note restaurants tended to close for part of the afternoon.

Walk from "Pharre" to La Franqui along the cilffs. When you get to La Franqui, you can watch Kite Surfers and Windsurfers training for fitness. The beach down there is endless. Don't forget to visit "Le Golf" for a Pizza with goat chees and honey...More

This is a very large sandy beach, being so large it would be difficult to be crowded. There are toilet & shower facilities & where I swam the water was fairly shallow.
