"Sea, Sun, Sand and Camargue" Le Grau-du-Roi by vinc_bilb

Le Grau-du-Roi Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 58 photos

Fishing port, sea

In the past, the resort was a fishing village but nowadays, it is a popular bathing resort with its 18 kilometres of beaches, one of the preferred for a lot of Frenchs.

Sea, jet-skiing or rowing and from the beaches, surf-casting or flying-surf are here.

This maritime town has kept pace with the evolution perhaps for a too long time, with a clear (unexpected?) buildings expansion.
This place retains sometime the atmosphere and charm of a Mediterranean village but could be crowded.

Extension to ...

The resort invites you to get in the wild territory the most enigmatic of France : La Camargue.
You can navigate on many lakes : the pound of Ponant, the delta and the canal of the Rhone, which links Sète to the canal of Midi, registered in the world heritage of Unesco. The hollow of the bay of Aigues Mortes is well protected from the wind.

At few kilometres away from there, Aigues-Mortes middle age city is a place to visit, including the salt merchants job.

Open air market

A different view, but typical: charm of a Mediterranean village and great for tourists
