The most beautiful beaches in Arles

The city is known for its ancient remains and its cultural offer. Visitors enjoy its picturesque streets, marvel at the bullring or the ruins of the Roman theater. But this historical and cultural destination is also home to wild spaces, between land and sea. Discover the most beautiful beaches in Arles, and the unspoilt stretches of the Camargue.

Piémanson, Into the wild

For nearly six kilometers, the beach of Piémanson hides behind beautiful sand dunes that are home to rare plants. This large wild area has no facilities: no restaurant, no grocery store, no stores less than ten kilometers away. Only a first-aid post watches over holidaymakers in season, in a limited area. This makes it easy to find a quiet place to put your towel down, and children have endless space to play. Piedmont beach is famous for sea kayaking.

Beauduc, the end of the world

Access is by a chaotic and sometimes difficult path. But your efforts are rewarded as soon as you reach the seven-kilometre-long Beauduc beach of fine sand. This wild area is protected by the Conservatoire du Littoral, but the coastal strip belongs to the public domain. Get on an adventure and get organized, especially by taking enough water with you and protection from the sun. Beauduc is one of the most popular kitesurfing spots in the Mediterranean.

For a long time, a hamlet made up of huts and caravans has welcomed freedom-loving inhabitants and holidaymakers. The importance of preserving the remarkable landscapes of the Camargue led to the end of this unique area.

Nautical activities

Renting a kayak, canoe or paddle invites you to discover the treasures of the coast in a different way. Various activities allow you to fill up with emotions: renting a jet-ski, flyboard, wakeboard, windsurf, parasailing, flyfish…
