    To Do or not to Do on the Beach in France

    Learn some French basic phrases to fully enjoy your holidays in France!

    Voilà l’été! Ok, not yet…We are only in June but the months of July and August are highly awaited by many, because it is vacation time!

    http://33.media.tumblr.com/2c71e2da2eb29a726c4e0cb25695c7d5/tumblr_inline_o5m4tojcQ31tygh8e_500.gif

    Do French people like to go to the beach?

    Many people take their summer vacations so they can go to the beach. French people usually spend a weekend or even as long as three weeks at the beach.

    So if I wanted to go to the beach in France, where should I go?

    The most fashionable beaches are on the:

  • English Channel: Cherbourg, Honfleur…
  • Atlantic ocean: Biarritz, Saint Jean du luz…
  • Mediterranean sea: Cannes, Nice, Marseilles…
  • These are the main sea resorts in France, and the destination usually depends on what people want to do.

    The Atlantic side, especially Biarritz, where the waves are big, and it is a surfing spot. There is a famous surfing competition there every summer. All of the Atlantic coast is great for jetskiing.

    http://38.media.tumblr.com/a747f5cb2e608831d9cea4d4cb647a66/tumblr_inline_o5m4n0LHnp1tygh8e_500.gif

    For partying, the French Riviera along the Mediterranean sea is the best. Oui, you can enjoy private beach parties with famous international DJs and if you are lucky, you can make VIP friends who will invite you to night parties on luxury yachts.

    For a family vacation, the north is the place to go if you don’t mind stone beaches and cooler water. The Atlantic is also nice. But be wary of the tides when you go to the beach because in France, they are as fast as a horse running. I don’t know if your horse runs but “tides” in French is les marées.

    http://38.media.tumblr.com/42e11c9e03179b410287840b4bc948e7/tumblr_inline_o5m47jYmbg1tygh8e_540.gif

    Are French beaches free?

    Most of them are free, but you may have to pay to go to private beaches.

    What should you eat on the beach? Cheese?

    No, we don’t eat cheese! We eat chouchous. Chouchou are peanuts with caramel. There is a guy who yells: chouchou, chouchou! Many people want to sell you things on the beach. Don’t hesitate to ignore them or just say “I don’t speak French” with an American accent, and they will not bother you again!

    What about attitude ?

    Try to not to be loud and noisy. Don’t play music with a sound system as there will be probably one on the beach.

    http://33.media.tumblr.com/77823b68407b5546ae26d472ed29e6ca/tumblr_inline_o5m4q0bmko1tygh8e_500.gif

    What are some other recommendations?

    Keep an eye on your stuff on the beach. Don’t leave your bag alone. French people are nice but you never know!
