Best beach town for couple

We are a couple in our 40's looking to spend a week to ten days touring quaint villages and vineyards in Languedoc and/or Provence. We would like to finish our trip with a few days in a relaxing town with a good beach. Any ideas (other than Collioure)

Between Collioure and Cassis, I recommend the following:

Palavas-les-Flots

Le Grau du Roi

Saintes Maries de la Mer

Hi - do you know if there is a later bus or tram service from Montpellier to Palavas-Les-Flots (say between 9pm and as late as 1am)?

Thanks

Just worth adding that it may be researching Sete. The centre of town is a ferry and fishing port, but the SW coast is a sand spit beach backed by dunes that extends over 10kms km to Marseillan Plage. It is reasonably active and has train access along the coast.

View here : http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=marseillan&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=36.999937,56.513672&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Marseillan,+H%C3%A9rault,+Languedoc,+France&z=11

In fact Marseillan Plage is worth a look, too !

If you can go to Cassis. That would a very nice end of your holiday. otherwise check out Gruisssan. I also like Carnon for the relax atmosphere and proximity restaurants and bars

Bus service stops somewhere around 20h00. The tram does not go as far as Palavas.
