La Ciotat’s seaside stretches over 7 kilometers. Sandy beaches, coves (calanques) and sheltered inlets make swimming a real pleasure. Three specific beach areas supply the swimmers with diverse options: Lumière Beach, labelled Tourisme & Handicaps (Accessible Tourism), provides suitable wheelchairs to the disabled and is also Europe’s first smoke-free beach. Capucins Beach is a dog-friendly beach.
