La Ciotat, in southern France on the French Riviera, sits midway between Marseilles and Toulon, approximately 22 miles from each. The small town is on a curved bay on the Mediterranean Sea. La Ciotat has several claims to fame including the game of petanque, which originated there. It was also the location of one of the first filmed motion pictures and the Eden Theater in which it was shown. Visitors who want to bask in a little Riviera sunshine can enjoy one of La Ciotat's several beaches. Along this part of the Riviera, beaches tend to be pebbly, but several in the La Ciotat region that have been carefully cultivated to create tourist-friendly sandy beaches.
The easily accessed main beaches of La Ciotat, Plage de La Baie de la Vierge and La Grande Plage, are the two longest beaches in the area. Both are sand beaches with restaurants and hotels nearby. Stay in the Hotel Miramar (miramarlaciotat.com), across the road from the water, and enjoy breakfast and dinner at the hotel. Nearby Chez Yannick (chezyannick.com), also close to the water, serves upscale dishes of veal, duck and fish, as well as Japanese and Mexican food. The Hotel Plage Saint Jean (hotelplagestjean.com) is conveniently located between the Plage de la Baie de la Vierge and La Grande Plage and has an indoor, heated swimming pool as well as sauna and whirlpool. It also has a restaurant on the premises.
In the summer of 2011, Lumiere Beach created a stir when it became the first French beach to ban smoking, creating a nice alternative for nonsmokers and for children who no longer had to play among cigarette butts. This sandy beach is just below La Grande Plage and was named for the Lumiere brothers, who introduced cinema film to the world. The Hotel la Marina B (hotel-marinab.com) adopts a cinemaic theme -- one of the hotel's rooms is dedicated to Marilyn Monroe and another to Charlie Chaplin.
