Beaches in the South of France – Grau d’Agde


Throughout the year, if there’s one thing that we all look forward to (other than Christmas), is the summer holidays. When you hear the words “summer” and “holidays” in the same sentence, the first thing that comes to mind is “sun and beaches”.

Luckily for you, you’re in the hands of someone who knows the South of France extremely well. So here I am to tell you everything you need to know about the most popular beaches in the Languedoc area. I’ve personally been to all of the ones I’m about to tell you about, so you can be sure to get an honest, experienced opinion on all of them.  There’s quite a few, so this will have to be divided into multiple posts!

My all time favourite beach in the South of France, is definitely Grau d’Agde. I didn’t discover this one until only a couple of years ago, when I went there for a meal with some family friends. As soon as I saw it, I was in love, and never wanted to go to any other beach, ever. I think that the most special thing about this beach, is that there’s an amazing bar/restaurant right on the beach. You can be sitting there enjoying a cocktail, looking out of the sea, with your feet in the sand, and I think that that makes this beach very special. More often than not, when you hear about a new beach restaurant, it’s right at the top of the beach and you actually have to walk down to the beach to be on it, which isn’t bad at all, but in my opinion it’s a bit more fun to be sipping a refreshing drink on the beach.

If you’re looking for somewhere to have some drinks, then relax on the beach on sun beds, and then have a delicious meal in a restaurant, then this place is definitely for you.

The beach in itself feels very private, which is always good. The water is cool and refreshing and the sand is soft between your toes. It’s a really, really great beach.
