Lovely beaches and coastal towns along the Mediterranean are well within reach from Les Labadous. We point you to a few favourites northeast of the Spanish border:

  • Banyuls-sur-Mer: A resort town with a clean beach in the central bay. Follow seaside paths to quiet coves and beaches nearby. For splendid views, take the road up to the 13th century Madeloc Tower.
  • Collioure: A beautiful coastal place, with a traditional old town and a beach in the colourful centre.
  • Port-la-Nouvelle: Attractions include 10 km of sand beach, a whale skeleton, and a busyfishing harbour (arrive around 9 a.m. for the seaside fish market).

There are many others, and some are very popular… so they tend to be quite busy during high season.
