“Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!” And if you do, you will be pleased to know we are only 70 minutes away from the Mediterranean. Go North of Perpignan to discover La Francqui Plage, (famous for the world kite-surfing championships), the miles of white sands at Gruissan or try the oyster bars along the front at Port Leucate if you tire of the Southern Californian feel of the beach at Leucate Plage.
Head South of Perpignan and you will find yourself in a landscape that inspired great artists such as Matisse and Dali. Our favourite places are the charming fishing villages of Collioure and Port Vendres where you will be guaranteed fine fresh seafood platters on the seafront. Argeles sur Mer is one of the finest sandy beaches in the region.
