There’s no getting away from it…Nice beaches are pebbly.
However with flipflops – or jelly shoes for the unfashion-conscious (after all you’re on holiday) – the beautiful grey/blue pebbles need not be a problem. In fact for trouble-free walking over the pebbles and a comfy foot-related entrance and exit from the waves look out for the black rubber beach shoes which most of the little beach shops sell. These are the best solution and look good too.
Getting in and out of the sea can be tricky because of the slope and swell! I do best to surf in on my tummy and reach for the shore this way. Of course you’re taking advice here from probably the least agile bather around so it’s very likely that you will experience no difficulty at all in nimbly nipping in and out of the waves.
