Not only for passionates of flamingos: Visiting the "Petit Camargue". We strongly recommend to use insect repellant.
Typical events in the region are the french bull fights which are organised in any village or town - dont' t worry about the bull - they all leave the arena after 15 mns of "work". Some of them are as famous as pop stars.
The Pic St. Loup invites to go climbing, hiking, riding, paragliding, or just to have a picknick, to take pictures and enjoy the marvelous view.
Wonderful any time of the year: The mediteranean beach between La Grande Motte and Carnon.
