French Inland Beach Fun

We've been on holiday to France many times over the last few years, one thing we have found is that whether you are by the coast or inland, there is always a way to find a beach to visit.

France is dotted with lakes which have small sandy spaces next to them, often with play areas, picnic spots and much more.

This year we found one that was close by to our holiday gite, Base De Loisirs - Jumieges Le Mensil is a smaller version of the one we have visited the past few years but still had everything needed for a visit to the beach and a day out.

With its blue lagoon like water and small but perfectly adequate beach, it is a great place to take the children for some sand castle building and water splashing fun without the worry of tides and deep water. There are lifeguards on duty too, for that extra piece of mind. 

As well as the beach this particular lake had a park, cafe and a Go-Ape style tree top adventure park, the water sparkled like diamonds on our visit and there were plenty of picnic spots around to have lunch.

After lunch we explored the rest of the park, which included a huge bouncy castle play area, exercise equipment and climbing frames, a great way to burn off some energy. Both of the children along with all the adults enjoyed a great day out

Without a doubt, I think that these inland beaches are a great source of enjoyment and I only wish we had some in the UK, we've always had so much fun visiting them and hope to visit a few more this week.

  1. Looks like a wonderful inland beach day and lots of family friendly facilities too. We have been on a French style Go Ape adventure, I think it was the most frightening thing I've ever done, but lots of fun. Enjoy your French adventure and if you gt a chance do join me for Country Kids, just stopping by from Magic Moments linky.
