On the Provençal coast between Bandol and La Ciotat, the 1.4 km-long beach at Les Lecques is a paradise for families, bathers and sports enthusiasts.
Located in Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, just along the coast from La Ciotat, the beach is very popular with residents who bathe there almost all year round as well as with tourists.
It stretches from the Port de St-Cyr to the Port de la Madrague in the picturesque Les Lecques bay. There are three parts to the beach. The section closest to the port and the centre of Les Lecques is sandy, and is the liveliest area. The central section is a pebble beach. And the other end, towards the Port de la Madrague, is sandy again. This section boasts a number of beachfront restaurants and snack bars as well as private beaches, where sunbeds can be hired. Paid parking facilities, lifeguard stations (open during the summer season), showers and public toilets are dotted all along the beach.
There is access to a range of different water sports, including sailing, windsurfing, sea kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, pedaloing, water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing, beach volleyball, etc.
