Most tourists, planning a vacation at sea, choose Spain, Greece, Italy and absolutely do not consider France. But why not? French beach resorts are no worse, and in many ways even better. 

France is associated primarily with the lavender fields of Provence, Paris, and Disneyland. The reason why tourists do not go en masse to the French “seas” is the lack of package tours. Tours to the Cote d'Azur and the Atlantic coast are organized pointwise, often by the travelers themselves. The resorts of France are also attractive for those who are looking for an exclusive. We think that even the most avid homebody and lovers of inactive recreation, such as effortless and entertaining play in online casinos in France, will appreciate these beaches.

French Riviera (Cote d'Azur in France)

To the west of Nice (Cannes, Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, Saint-Tropez) there are sandy beaches, and in Nice itself and further towards Italy they are pebble. The beaches of the Cote d'Azur are significantly different from the Atlantic coast, for the most part, they are small, the maximum width of which is 30-40 meters.

On the Cote d'Azur, all beaches have the status of municipal recreation areas. However, approximately once every 5 years, some beaches are played at auctions. Hotels or just wealthy citizens (that is, who is involved in this business) who win the auction receive part of the beach for temporary use (rental) and as a result, entry to it becomes paid (about 20 euros per day).

However, it is worth noting that paid beaches have a number of advantages, namely: the cost of a day's visit to the beach includes the use of a sunbed, umbrella, mattress, and shower. For example, on nearby free beaches, there is no such equipment, plus always a huge number of people. In Nice, all luxury hotels provide their guests with a 50% discount on the use of a paid beach.

The Cote d'Azur also includes the world-famous resort town of Monte Carlo, which is definitely worth a visit if you are in these places.

Atlantic Coast of France

The Atlantic coast of France is known all over the world due to the presence of magnificent sandy beaches, but at the same time, the main drawback of this area is the problem of the ebb and flow: in certain areas, the sea can go 1 kilometer from the coast.

Biarritz is one of the most popular resorts on the entire Atlantic coast. The beautiful sandy beaches of Biarritz stretch from two rocky ledges - Cape Saint-Martin and the Atalay Plateau to the prestigious northern beach of Chambres d'Amour. Brittany's sea beaches are especially charming in small bays, hidden from view among numerous cliffs. But the sea level (water) changes here quite often and very noticeably.

It is for this reason that tourists try to swim at high tide, and at low tide to engage in the collection of shells and crabs, which the sea, retreating, leaves on the shore. As a rule, the most powerful tides occur in the northern part of Brittany. Sand on the beaches of Brittany has an amazing ability to "drag out".
