Beaches to the west of Toulon

Does anybody know the beaches on the peninsula to the west of Toulon? Places like La Seyne sur Mer and Six Fours Les Plages. Do they get very crowded in July and August? Are there any quiet spots? Are they sandy? Thanks a million.

Early July and these locations are just relatively crowded. As August approaches, these locations will be inundated with sun bathers like ants swarming around moist bread.

Even for July, if you have not yet reserved for a place to stay, it may be difficult to find accommodations. For August 2010 it´s probably too late to book now.

This is French / European peak hol time, and on the Med - yes it will be crowded. If any quiet places exist people will keep them quiet.

There are some smallish sand beaches on the peninsula along with marinas, with a hilly backdrop, quite nice but can't say any realy stood out.

The sandy beach at Six Fours stretches about a mile to Sanary sur Mer so this could be the one to g for. The road immediately behind has lots of roadside parking plus parking right along the centre of the road. Though even when I visited in May most spaces were taken! There is nowhere near as much accommodation as you would expect along this stretch, it is mostly at either end in the towns.
