South France beach holidays 2023

We have lived in South France for over 12 years and we have 3 boys of own, so we have spent a lot of time finding good beaches to take them to. My list of the best beaches in South France would include the following 5 beaches:

  • Collioure beaches near Perpignan - Collioure has 3 beaches. The beaches themselves are quite small and often packed with sunbathers, but it is the backdrop which really makes these beaches special. You have the Pyrenees mountains behind the town of Collioure and the castle and Church are beautiful sites (see Collioure beaches for more info)
  • Argeles sur Mer beaches near Perpignan - Argeles has a large flat beach with plenty of space. From the beach you have a lovely view of the Pyrenees mountains and there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants at the back of the beach
  • L'Espiguette beach Montpellier - this is a big wild beach close to Montpellier. You get some big rollers coming in off the Mediterranean and there is an excellent beach bar. This is definitely the pick of the beaches near Montpellier and parking is never an issue because there is a huge public car park next to the beach. L'Espiguette beach is located close to Le Grau du Roi, East of Montpellier.
  • Tahiti Plage beach St  Tropez - this beach brings back such fond memories for our family. I remember seeing all the yachts drop anchor off the beach and all these celebrities being brought into the beach on jet skis. There was even a helicopter which landed at the back of the beach and Johnny Depp walked out past us. The sea at Tahiti beach is very shallow and safe for children. I would say that this is the best of the St Tropez beaches to visit.
  • Calanques beach Cassis - the beach itself is pretty non-descript, but the view is to die for. The sea is this amazing turquoise colour and you have these high cliffs on either side of the inlet which stretch out to the sea (see Cassis beach France for more information)

Below we have picked out the best properties for beach holidays in South France on Go Languedoc. In particular, we have highlighted those villas near the beach that come wifi and UK TV - all popular requirements from our customers. At Go Languedoc, we personally visit all of the advertised properties to check that the details are as accurate as possible. We also have a good understanding of the local area and attractions. If you have any particular requirements, then please send us an email Beach holidays South of France 2023 telling us what you are looking for. We will then compile you a list of options for you to consider, based on our first hand knowledge of the villas and the areas.
