Our opinion on the Eastern beach

Adresse of the Eastern beach : Av Commandant Jacques Y Cousteau 13460 Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer

The Eastern beach of Saintes Maries de la Mer is the wildest beach of the Camargue resort. The beach stretches for several kilometres to the east of the city centre towards Beauduc. Between sea and lakes, this site is located in the Camargue’s Game Reserve. The area closest to the city centre (around the spa centre) is family oriented. It is even under surveillance during summer. There are nudist areas 1 km after the start of the dike. Dogs are allowed after the dike.

From Saintes Maries de la Mer, you will find a paid car park after the spa centre (and an area for campers after the bridge of Pertuis de la Fourcade. From there, it is a large expanse of sand for several kilometres; almost desert dunes! However, access by car is impossible (no cleared track), possible access only on foot or by bicycle. You need to go through the dike to the sea, through which you can reach the Gacholle lighthouse (also accessible by car from Salin de Badon – heed the 4 km trail to access the Countess car park in a bad state).
