Grande Plage

La Ciotat - Beach

Grande Plage
As its name implies, "Grande plage" is a large beach located right in the heart of La Ciotat, next to Port des Capucins. Particularly popular among families, it is attended by a lifeguard in summer and fitted out with showers and play areas. Although most of the beach is public, it also includes a private section lined with restaurants and snack bars, where you can hire out sun loungers and parasols.
"Grande plage" is a great place for practising local water sports such as sailing, waterskiing and kayaking. The beach is easily accessible to all thanks to its paying car park running along the roadside and special facilities for the disabled, making it a practical choice for all sun lovers
