La Croix-Valmer is a little town on the French Riviera to the South of Saint-Tropez, as you would imagine with any town on the Cote d’Azur it is quite attractive thanks to its beaches and pine covered Maures Massif. There are some lovely villas from the earlier part of the 20th century that are worth checking out. The two most impressive are the Maison des Peres du Saint Esprit and the Orangery. However, it goes without saying, if you are paying a visit to La Croix-Valmer then you have come for the beaches and scenery.

Beaches of La Croix-Valmer

There are a number of fantastic beaches in La Croix-Valmer and they cover many kilometres of coastline with lovely backdrops consisting of rocks and trees. The water is crystal clear and the beaches are very sandy. As a result, the beaches of La Croix-Valmer have been given the blue flag award for cleanliness and facilities. The town even lays on free shuttle buses from its centre to some of the more popular beaches.

Visit as many as possible

Arguably the most popular beaches are the Plage de Giagaro and the Plage du Debarquement both of which have complete facilities and during summer time are extremely busy. There are other beaches which are much quieter but have no facilities so you will have to make a choice as to which you prefer. It is highly recommended that if you do come to La Croix-Valmer, you should visit as many beaches as you can since they tend to differ quite substantially from one another. You should also be aware that these beaches were extremely important landing beaches during the invasion of Southern France as the Second World War was drawing to a close.
