Beaches are a strong point of the area around Frejus. There is continuous sand stretching for around 3 miles between St Raphael in the east and St Aygulf to the west. They enjoy good shelter from westerly winds.

To the west, they are generally less crowded, and behind them lies undeveloped, open land, with a large car park adjacent to the 'Base Nature', which lies immediately to the west of Port Frejus.

Closer to St Aygulf, the beaches broaden to large tracts of sand with mini bays created by stone breakwaters (though the water seldom breaks in summer!). There, the water is shallow and warm, ideal for carefree fun for the children. It is entirely feasible to walk there from the apartment to St Aygulf, but it is advisable to drive if children are in the party or there is any quantity of beach equipment.

There is a substabtial amount of parking at very reasonable cost adjacent to the beaches near St Aygulf, though spaces are can be hard to find between 11am and 4pm in summer.

    Further afield, there is a multitude of bays and coves stretching for miles. There are many pretty ones to be found west from St Aygulf towards Les Issambres and Ste Maxime.
