Beaches, Historic Sites and More Provencal Attractions
St. Tropez is perhaps one of the most well-known beaches in the French Riviera, and certainly the most glamorous, with beaches like Plage de Pamplonne attracting movie stars and wealthy vacationers in numbers as high as 30,000 in one day. Adults who are interested in exhibitionism head to Tahiti Beach for a little topless sunbathing, while families are attracted to the shallow, safe waters of Graniers or Bouillabaisse Beaches.
If you want to enjoy something beyond the turquoise Mediterranean waters and sunny beaches of the Riviera, then some of the area's famous historic landmarks may be of interest. The Roman Aqueducts of Pont du Gard are an amazing site, while the ancient market town of Castelnaudary offers picturesque scenery and interesting walking tours. Carcassonne is another medieval town designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site with beautiful palaces and grand homes to view, and some of the most beautiful lavender fields in the region are found at the 12th century Senanque Abbey near Gordes.
