Seaside holiday in the South of France- where's a nice place to go?

My friend and I want to go to the South of France for a week in August to enjoy the sunshine and to brush up on our Francais. We'll both be 17 then, and we want to go somewhere fun, where there's lots to do. Preferably a fairly big town, and there MUST be a nice beach :)
Any suggestions?
