The Beaches and Coastline of Languedoc Roussillon



Languedoc-Roussillon has 150 miles of glorious Mediterranean coastline which stretches From the Camargue in the North to the Vermillion Coast that reaches to the Spanish Border.  


The coast has a warm climate; clear, healthy warm Mediterranean waters and includes some of the finest French beaches.  More than 40 of the beaches carry the much coveted Blue Flag, the European award for clean bathing water. 


If you like the seaside – you’ll love Languedoc Rousillon! 

It is a mixture of old and new family holiday resorts, working fishing villages and health spas backed by saltwater lagoons, canals, grapevines, cliffs and some of the warmest golden sands around. 


If you want lively modern resorts visit Cap d’Agde, Gruissan, Port-Leucate, Port-Barcarès and Saint-Cyprien.  Here you will find bustling towns with Regattas, cruises, fishing contests and wind surfing events.


If it’s windsurfing you fancy go south to the pine-clad slopes of the massif de la Clape which rise above the resorts of Gruissan and Leucate.

The sandy coastline of Languedoc-Roussillon stretches down to Argelès-sur-Mer then rugged, rocky headlands start to rise out of the sea inspiring painters like Matisse and Picasso with the light found in ports such as Collioure, Banyuls, Port-Vendres and Cerbère. The grandeur of this coastline still inspires visitors today but be just a little wary of the winding coast road which can be daunting for the unwary!
