What's Sainte-Maxime Like?
Sainte-Maxime is all about the beaches and there are several to choose from. The main town beach has a free public section, restaurants and a children's playground, but can get very busy in summer. To the east of the town there are more tranquil options, including La Nartelle, La Garonette and La Plage des Elephants, with a wide range of water sports facilities. There are charges for parasols, loungers and the refreshment services. Historic sights amount to La Tour Carree, a former fortress dating from the 16th century now housing a museum of local folklore. Sainte-Maxime has a bustling nightlife, while family attractions include Aqualand, an extensive water park offering rides, slides and pools. Sainte-Maxime hotels provide a relaxed base for exploring the chic resorts and beaches of the French Riviera.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Sainte-Maxime
English is understood in most of the tourist restaurants and beach bars in Sainte-Maxime, but elsewhere a few handy French phrases might be required for use in stores and cafes. As elsewhere on the Cote d'Azur, restaurants can be expensive. Looking beyond the fashionable waterfront establishments, it is occasionally possible to find local bistros and brasseries offering prix fixe lunchtime menus that can be an inexpensive option. Otherwise, you can assemble a lavish beach picnic from the covered market on rue Fernand-Bessy or from the Thursday market which offers a great variety of Provencal produce.
