Prao Plage Beach Club, Sainte Maxime

One of the oldest private beaches of Nartelle in Sainte Maxime

It is also one of the most beautiful beaches of the French Riviera, both from the quality of its sandy and because of its cleanliness. In fact the water is still crystal clear and of high quality (Pavillon Bleu).

Customers wishing to travel by boat to the beach will be greeted by Miguel, the beach attendant, who offers moorings for boaters ease and convenience. The Prao is an absolute must in Sainte-Maxime!

  • "Fresh grilled fish, steaks, some pasta and risotto dishes dominate the menu, but you don't really come for the food - come and listen to the music, dance if you want to, but just relax and be a part of the Beautiful People. Enjoy!" - Trip Advisor
