The nearest beach, plage Grazel, is just a 5 minute walk from the apartment. Restaurants, cafés, shops line the promenade. It’s fun to watch the the bustle of activity on bird island which sits in the middle of the waterway leading to the marina.

Several beautiful large sandy beaches stretch from Gruissan up to Narbonne plage. They are all within 10mins drive and have parking areas either on or next to the beach.

The most famous of the local beaches is Gruissan Plage which features wooden houses on stilts. It was the location for a French film called Betty Blue.
