Mediterranean Sea

Almost 50 km of fine sandy beaches, seaside resorts and natural areas follow one another along the Mediterranean. Each of the resorts offers you its own special atmosphere and a wide range of activities. There is something for everyone: water sports, water sports, seaside activities, hiking...

Change the scenery thanks to the cycle paths or boat connections. Go from the mythical beaches of the Chalets to Gruissan, to the family beaches, to the wild beaches shaped by the dunes...

Nature lovers will be delighted with the discovery of the Parc Naturel Régional de la Narbonnaise in the Mediterranean. This area rich in biodiversity is home to exceptional flora and fauna, natural areas and typical Languedoc villages where know-how has been preserved.

The immense beaches of the Aude are made to take your time and PROFIT!
Even in the middle of summer, you will always have room!

Whatever your preference, you will find the beach you need: family-friendly beaches with entertainment and where you can walk a long way, "straw huts" beaches and ephemeral restaurants where you can have a drink or enjoy a seafood platter while relaxing with your feet in the water, wild beaches where you think you are at the end of the world, or on the contrary beaches in the heart of resorts, for those who do not want to walk too much...

And of course, the mythical beach, the beach of the chalets in Gruissan, where the film-makers drew their inspiration like the film "37,2° in the morning".

At sea or on the ponds, the Narbonnaise and its 200 days of wind per year is known to be ranked among the best windsurfing, funboard and kitesurfing spots in the world... ideal for fans of gliding! Rather board or rather kite? Beginner or experienced kitesurfer?

It doesn't matter, there are 12 spots waiting for you to have fun all year round! Courses and schools, equipment hire, there's something for everyone.

Water skiing, jetski, raptor, flyfish, towed buoy, hoverboard, flyboard, and other skyfly... for those with a good heart, sensations guaranteed along our beaches!

Just a few metres from the beaches, sometimes unsuspected landscapes await the visitor in love with nature and wide open spaces! Little is known about it, but it is one of the rare preserved natural sites, with such a biodiversity, on the Mediterranean coast. The lido of long sandy beaches separates a string of ponds that make up the lagoons.

Swamps, active salt marshes and small water sports centres punctuate this still wild territory, which can be discovered on foot, by bike or on horseback. Numerous signposted walks through pine forests and garrigues criss-cross the Narbonnaise area.

The Heritage Circuits, which are interpretation trails, the massifs of La Clape overlooking the sea, the Grande Randonnée around the Ancient Gulf, the Sentier Cathare which starts at Port-la-Nouvelle, the choice is vast! 56% of the territory of the Regional Park is now part of the Natura 2000 network!

The Mediterranean in the Aude is not only long sandy beaches for tourists, but also everlasting trades and traditions: eel fishing in the Etang de Bages pond or sea fishing, sea bream fishing, trolling, longline fishing, octopus pots, nets or traps, oyster farms, sauniers, marine carpentry...

So many opportunities to discover the work of these men and women and to taste the products resulting directly from their labour!
