Best accessed by helicopter or yacht although most people arrive by car, Pampelonne has been attracting the glamorous to its fine white sand and turquoise waters since the 1950s and 60s. Three miles (5 km) long, it is a mix of public beach and beach clubs with parasols and loungers for rent. The public clothing optional areas may be found between Tamaris and Patch entrances and at the Chemin des Barraques entrance, or look to the private Neptune club. July and August are peak months, so visit earlier or later if you want a bit more sand.
