Your questions about Fréjus


There are many beaches in Fréjus, but our favorite is the plage des Esclamandes in Saint-Aygulf. The sand is magnificent and the sea pleasant. Fréjus residents come here with their families, and tourists flock here in summer.


If we had to recommend just one hike, it would be the coastal path between Saint-Raphaël and Le Dramont. Allow around 2h30 to marvel at the sumptuous coves and the azure blue of the Mediterranean.
