France has several spectacular beaches as well as chic and elegant resorts, but sometimes it’s best to leave it all behind and seek some quiet communion with nature in one of France’s secret beaches. Here are some of the country’s quiet and secluded beaches for those who want to spend some time near the water but without all of the crowds and noise the busier beaches offer.

Cenitz Beach

Located in Basque Country between Guéthary and St. Jean de Luz, in the southwest, this beach will delight seekers of seclusion and authenticity. There’s a scenic coastal path to enjoy the spectacular view and discover the wild flora and fauna—just make sure not to disturb the natural ecosystem as this is conservation area.
