In Grand du Roi, in Camargue, there is a place that particularly caught my attention: l'Espiguette beach. It's an immensity of sand with dunes and coastal protected areas, and where you feel in harmony with nature. For longer beach hours, a hut has been built on the beach, not far from the main entrance after passing the parking lot. On this beautiful, equipped beach, you can rent chairs and umbrellas, which reflect the summer blue water, as well as kayaks. The arrangement is particularly successful, with natural shoreline wood sculptures decorating the hut, and a fun exhibition panel. There aren't many people, and it's an ideal setting for relaxation. I loved lying down and enjoying the special atmosphere of the beach of l'Espiguette!
I can't show you pictures because my iphone isn't letting me. However, if you can go to Le Grau du Roi in the evening as it is a special village. For example having a channel Venetian-style with a lighthouse in the background. You can also dine on the banks of the same. I discovered by chance as though it's a tourist town did not see it anywhere recommended. But worth it.
I had never seen such a big port before! I was lucky enough to cross it by boat and thus enjoy a good view of its size and the sea. This marina, located in the vicinity of a large natural harbor, Espiguette Point, which was built with the environment in mind. Isn't that great? In fact, there is no free space for new ships. Apart from the safety and quality of services offered to mariners, Port Camargue is an example in which the commitment to environmental protection is concerned: is the first port to be involved in the operation "Clean Ports".I had the opportunity to meet the director of the Capitania and tell him about this promise to nature. This navigation lover defends clean water with a passion and he fights for conserving the environment, especially oceans.
The town of Grau du Roi offers coastal tourism in Camargue. The highlight in the middle of Grau du Roi immediately seduced me. You can spend many idle hours there watching the comings and goings of the fishing boats and fishermen followed by an impressive flock of seagulls. It's a unique show! Throughout the day, many fishermen return from the sea, and you can learn a lot just watching them work. The fishing port's prime location, in the heart of the city, makes Grau du Roi a unique environment in which you feel part of an authentic seafaring life. Another addition to the attractions of a seaside resort is the passion of its residents for its maritime heritage. All restaurants serve fresh fish. I tempted myself and tasted!
Grau du Roi is in a little village of Languedoc Roussillon, in Camargue, on the Mediterranean coast. I spent a few days discovering the charm of the city center and it was well worth it. The center is crossed by the fishermen port, so one is immediately immersed in the world of sailors and fishermen, in the middle of a parade of boats and stalls selling fresh fish. What a show as fun in the heart of the city of Grau du Roi. In the middle of the fishing port there was a group of people waiting on either side of the channel. The boats passed by as usual, what else would you expect? I got my answer a few minutes later: the bridge turns on itself to relocate and allow pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles to cross! It was totally cool and it really does attract a crowd.
There is no sea, no beaches and no watersports in Grand du Roi but so what! There is no better trip than a visit to the Seaquarium. It's perfect for entertaining children while learning about the marine world. Its 2,500 square meters house fish, Mediterranean and tropical invertebrates, marine mammals, sharks... In total, more than 200 species of fish and 25 sharks. But besides seeing all these creatures, kids can also take an interactive tour of the Seaquarium where they can learn through photos, videos and exhibitions. I remember watching these giant fish with wide eyes, like a child! A totally fascinating experience for all ages!
During the summers of the south coast it is traditional to go to festivals. I stayed at Grau du Roi, in Camargue, a beautiful town with lots of attractions for nature lovers, such as staying up late! That afternoon we decided to go to the festival, heading to Luna Park. A huge fair with lots of attractions, each more amazing than the last. From afar we could already see the huge ferris wheel, and a strange light bar that swung in the sky. The excitement increased, and we hurried to see everything up close as soon as we could. As you enter the festival you're dazzled by the environment, in every corner there are screams, laughter, children in awe of the colourful lights ... we didn't wait another minute and got on one of the attractions, the modern version of the "Yard": we moved from side to side, what an adrenaline rush! The afternoon continued between cotton candy and bumper cars. We left the park very late, after experiencing all the excitement possible!
In Grau du Roi, which can be found in Camargue on the Mediterranean coast, there are a lot of ponds and wonderful trails to walk on. Of course, the sea is always there, right nearby. In fact this ocean is famous for the quality of its waters and its protected ecosystem. Grau du Roi is divided into two parts, the right and left bank. Walking around the city, along the right bank, I came to a beautiful beach. Compared to the other beaches in the area, in this mood was different, warm and friendly. Many usual stay there for bathing or fishing, alone, with friends or family. While there, both locals and tourists were fishing, walking and angling. Not far from the city center, easy to find to pause by the water during the day, and it's the ideal place for walks at night or dusk. It's a great, beautiful, calm place where you can rest.
