You may be put off by its heavily built-up waterfront, bristling with parking garage–style apartments and hotels, and its position directly on the waterfront highway, but Ste-Maxime is an affordable family resort with fine, easily accessible, sandy beaches. It even has a sliver of a car-free Old Town and a stand of majestic plane trees sheltering the central Place Victor-Hugo. Its main beach, north of town, is the wide and sandy La Nartelle.
