Giverny, France Giverny, France

Trying to decide where to stay near the beach in France? The area is a fun, active, and exciting beach destination. When researching the best beach hotel in France for your next trip, you'll probably want to look for a variety of amenities such as a nice pool, oceanfront location near the water, free parking, fitness center, and access to water sports. For families traveling with children, a kid-friendly environment is also a must. And for couples seeking a romantic getaway, perhaps a spa, hot tub, and ocean views might be essential. Safety is also a top priority, as is the price, nearby activities, and guest ratings. With so many hotels near the water to choose from, finding the perfect beach resort or hotel can be overwhelming. That's why this guide will highlight the top hotel stays on the beach in France based on traveler ratings and these criteria. From the soft sand to the luxurious amenities, France's beach resorts and hotels offer the best of everything for vacationers looking for a relaxing and enjoyable beach trip.

The southern, Mediterranean coast of France offers plenty of beaches with gorgeous sand, blue water, warm weather, and historical towns. Whether you stay in a larger town with restaurants, hotels, history, and nightlife, or move further along to the quieter spots, you'll enjoy plenty of clear skies with equally clear water and that special French Riviera feeling. Some of the most popular beach destinations in this part of France include Nice, Saint-Tropez, Cannes, and Marseille. Along the Atlantic coast, you'll find even more diversity. The northern coastline is a bit colder and historic, while in the south you can find even more warm-weather beach vacation towns such as Biarritz and the surrounding resort towns close to Spain.
