Description: Le Grau-du-Roi is a pleasant sea side resort with good sand and clean water. The resort faces the more modern La Grande-Motte across the Golfe d’Aigues-Mortes and the beaches are usually reasonably quiet.

Location: Situated by Port-Camargue facing La Grande-Motte, to the east of Montpellier.

Our recommendations: We would suggest that you leave the beach mid afternoon and drive inland for a walk around the walls at Aigues-Mortes followed by dinner in one of the open air restaurants there.

For the children: Visit the Seaquarium between Le Grau-du-Roi and Port-Camargue.
