What to do this summer by the sea?
- Great ideas
It's decided: you will spend your summer holidays with the sea in sight! Discover our selection of activities in the most beautiful towns along the French coast.
There is always something to do in Antibes: get lost in the labyrinthine alleys of the old town, stroll along the Vauban port and admire the yachts moored at the famous "quai des milliardaires", discover local products on the Provencal market, or simply enjoy the beaches and the Cap d'Antibes. Park your car in the Pré-des-Pêcheurs car park (book in advance for safety!) and let yourself be cheered up by the soft Mediterranean atmosphere. If you have time, push a little further: Cap d'Antibes, Juan Les Pins, Cannes - easily accessible by public transport from downtown Antibes.
Surprising and unavoidable, the city of Bordeaux offers a thousand activities to do with the family. Soak in the incomparable atmosphere of the old centre, book a boat trip, enjoy the parks and public gardens, and stroll along the banks of the Garonne. All this on foot from the Clémenceau - Auditorium car park. Not forgetting all the things to do in the region, especially with the Bassin d'Arcachon just an hour away by train!
The Côte d'Opale is not lacking in beauty, and the fortified town of Boulogne-sur-Mer is not the least fascinating of them. The Cité de la Mer is especially famous for its aquarium, Nausicaá, the largest in Europe, where 1,600 marine species and 58,000 animals live side by side. To get there, nothing could be simpler: the Q-Park National Sea Centre car park, a few dozen metres away, offers a 6-hour parking pass for €8 or 12 hours for €13.
In Marseille, there is nothing like strolling around the Old Port and enjoying its special atmosphere, sitting on the terrace of a café along the quays, or getting lost in the heart of the Panier district (inspiration for the series "Plus belle la vie"). Leave your car in the Joliette-Port parking lot and walk down to the Pharo. Then, when the city's energy has whipped you, take a trip to the Calanques or the Frioul islands.
Feel like tasting delicious seafood or simply taking a nice walk on the ramparts? The Cité Corsaire conceals a thousand wonders of which the Saint-Vincent cathedral, the Saint-Malo castle and the National fort (built by Vauban in 1689) are only the most notable. Located just a stone's throw from the old town centre, the Saint Vincent car park offers you a weekly parking package: take advantage of it to explore the pretty surrounding towns, including the unmissable Dinard!
In Toulon, past and present live in good harmony. The vestiges of yesterday (Tour Royale, Fort Saint-Louis) are intermingled with the activities of today (opera, Cours Lafayette market, restaurants on the port). Park in one of the car parks in the town centre (Lafayette or Mayol, for example) and climb Mont Faron to enjoy an exceptional panorama, before descending towards the beaches of Mourillon.
Between its tree-lined quays, its marina and the proximity of the sea, Vannes smells the sweetness of life. On its own, the old town surrounded by ramparts, organised around the Saint-Pierre cathedral, set up as a pedestrian zone, is worth the detour. After a drink on the terrace, all you have to do is follow the south from the Q-Park du Port car park to reach the Conleau peninsula and take a dip!
