Travels and Escapes Reviews Agay, France

by Wendy VanHatten

At first glance, Agay, France could be a beach town in any number of countries.

There’s a mostly sandy beach dotted with beach towels, sun worshippers, and kids playing in the sand and water. Dark red cliffs of the Massif de l’Esterel  rise up out of the water and border many beaches, making the sand an interesting shade of red.

Boats vie with yachts bobbing in the harbor of this sheltered natural bay. Water so clear and blue, this might give you a clue where you are. They don’t call it Cote d’Azur for no reason. This coastal resort is between Saint-Raphael and Theoule-sur-Mer. Cannes is not far away.

Village shops, cafes, restaurants, and water sports rentals line the street. This is a much smaller, quieter beach resort than its more famous neighbors up and down the coast.

Slightly off the beach is a restaurant I would recommend for lunch, dinner, drinks, dessert…or all of the above. Restaurant La Galere is worth looking for. Locals and visitors both love it here.

Just outside of Agay is a WWII Memorial to US soldiers involved in the defense of this part of France. Operation Dragoon is part of the forgotten invasion of Southern France. More about that in another review…

Views here are just as magnificent as anywhere along the coast. Maybe better…there aren’t as many tourists. Photo ops abound in just about any direction. Seduction…this village will entice you to return.

I am looking forward to heading back there…travel plans 2022.
