Trying to plan a Paris & Mediterranean honeymoon

Hi everyone! I'm trying to figure out where to go on my honeymoon but know that we both want to do Paris. After that, we were thinking somewhere on the coast (France, Italy, or Spain) to relax with a beach. Anyone have any ideas of cities/towns? And suggestions on resorts? Don't want to blow the bank, but not looking to stay in a budget hotel. Thanks!

There are hundreds of nice beaches and thousands of good hotels in the area you are talking about.

That doesn't tell us much. How much do you actually want to spend?
When is the trip?
How many days?

ALL of Janis's questions.
Beaches are very different in parts of Europe from our sandy wide ones. Be sure you get the description and it fits what you want.

Agree that we can;t do anythng without your dates, number of days and specific budget.

Many beaches in europe are pebble or even rocks - not the broad pure white sand beaches you get in the US - so you need to check out that - as well as:

If you are looking for an inclusive resort
If you want some light sightseeing in the same area
If you want just to relax on the beach but a lot of water activities

Also what you are expecting will help - esp if you have a tight budget.

Try Cassis in France - sandy beaches. We also like Mojacar and Marbella in Spain.

Do you have a map and guidebooks? Narrow it down a bit (the area you're referencing is vast) and come back with more specific requests, including your hotel budget, in euros.

Why have you ruled out Greece, if you are wanting a romantic break?
