Best beach in French Riviera. Amazing clean water. Safe step into water. Sandy beach. Quiet place. Requires effort to reach it (~3km to walk or bike) (no motorized transport allowed on beach)

Best beach in the area. Not too many people and still has an authentic look despite the tourist season!

The most beautiful beach in Europe I have been so far. Shalow turquoise water, no waves and white sand are what everybody can dream about.

Fantastic turquoise water on the car-free island of Porquerolles. Enjoy a day of hiking or cycling and stop by this beautiful beach in the north-east of the island.

Need to be fit to get there! Long, narrow, north facing beach. Water rather cold, but extremely shallow and clear, over clean sand
