MAOBI PLAGE, private beach, Agay, Saint Raphaël, French Riviera
About the beach
Maobi Plage private beach is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the French Riviera coastline. The charming town of Agay, near Saint Raphaël, sits in a pretty bay that offers shelter from the wind as well as lovely Mediterranean swimming conditions. The 180 sun beds at Maobi Plage beach are arranged on the sand, under tropical-style grass umbrellas which offer some welcome shade from the Côte d’Azur sunshine. The beach offers waiter service directly to your spot on the beach, so a cold glass of the local Provençal rosé is never too far away! There is a bar that is open from 9am through until 1am, as well as a restaurant serving a tasty array of Mediterranean specialities.
