The beach was great and the water here in the French Riveara is great. Its just cold enough to cool you off during the midday heat but warm enough to be comfortable.
San Raphael was great and we actually didnt even plan on going there until about an hour before. We had heard from a couple of other groups that it was a fun place to go out in and had a great beach which we found out were both true. We walked around for about 30 minutes going into 5 or 6 different hotels trying to find a place to stay and we were just about to give up but decided to try one more and it actually turned out to be about half of the price as the others, AND HAD A BETTER VIEW OF ALL THE BEACH AND HAD A FAN!!! We were really pumped about that.
