      the beach

      The beach

      No vacation in Montpellier is complete without discovering the beaches of the Hérault. Less than 20 minutes away from the city, the Mediterranean Sea unfolds a coastline that is sometimes wild as in Grand Travers or Aresquiers, sometimes urbanized as in Palavas or Grande Motte.

      The Espiguette beach located in Grau du Roi is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Montpellier. With its dunes as far as the eye can see and this seemingly endless strip of sand, it offers stunning scenery. The Petit Travers beach in Carnon, the Aresquiers beach in Frontignan, the Pilou beach in Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone are all beaches that will make you appreciate even more the life in Montpellier.

      CANOEING TRIPS

      Canoeing on the Herault river

      Discover a multitude of canoeing routes in the green countryside around Montpellier, or in the heart of the Cevennes mountains.

      Swimming and lazing around in the gorges of the Hérault: the canoeing trip we invite you to join here, will make you discover a river whose source begins on the Mediterranean granite and schist mountainside of Mount Aigoual, in the Gard department, at an altitude of 1280 meters, and flows into the Mediterranean Sea after a 164 kilometers long trip, across the Hérault department.

      la pÉTANQUE

      La pétanque

      A good game of pétanque starts simply this way... launch your petanque boules closer to the target than your opponent does.

      A little sunshine, a flat court, international friends you met in class at Accent Français and it's off to a great time of fun and recreation. Besides, in France, petanque is considered as a sport...good for your health!

      BOAT EXCURSIONS
