Visiting France should involve a lot more than just Parisian nights, wine and fancy shopping. France is also known for their stunning coastlines where holidaymakers from all over the world come to relax in style. When visiting the five beaches below, try to travel in off-peak months when the crowds have dispersed and there is more room for enjoyment.
Côte de Basques, Biarritz
Head to the Atlantic coast of France, close to the Spanish border, for a picturesque beach complete with a hillside chateau in the background. Surfers will appreciate the killer waves that drum against the coast.
Calanque d´en Vau, Cassis
Although not as easily accessible as the other options on this list, the trek to this cove is worth the effort. After a two-hour hike or shorter kayak ride, reward yourself with rest on this clandestine pebbly beach, followed by a dive from a 10-foot cliff into the water.
Nestled among the cliffs of the English Channel is this sleepy seaside town full of history and serenity. Artists come for natural and architectural inspiration from the limestone cliffs and classic buildings throughout the town.
Plage de la Paloma, Côte d´Azur
Beachgoers who are keen to experience a bit of luxury should head to Paloma Beach for some exquisite cocktails and celebrity spotting. Due east of Nice, this classy beach on the Cote d´Azur is a quick bus ride from Monaco, a gambler´s paradise.
Plage des Marinieres, Villafranche sur Mer
Escape the crowds of the French Riviera by traveling three minutes by train down the coast to this quiet Mediterranean village. Swim in peace and even snorkel among the fish that nest just offshore.
