Hi everyone, we will be cruising on the Disney Magic shortly and will be visting these ports in France - Ajaccio and Villefranche, I am trying to find out if there are beaches within walking distance (1-2 miles) of these ports, any information would be greatly appreciated.

The beach in Villefranche is an easy walk from the tender station.

The Villefranche harbor is spectacularly beautiful. The town of Villefrance is spectacularly beautiful. The beach at Villefrance is, um, a decent place to get wet and splash in the water.

I've been told, but can't confirm, that the beach at Beaulieu-sur-Mer is much nicer and can be walked from Villefranche.

There are sandy beaches near both of the ship's berths/tender. You will see the one at Villefranche from the ship and the one in Ajaccio isn't far either. Ajaccio is also a lovely place for shopping, cafes restaurants etc.
