Location and orientation
The geography of Port Leucate is its first asset. This peninsula, which extends from Barcarès to Port-la-Nouvelle, is a vast expanse of advanced nature on the Mediterranean. With its 18 kilometres of beach, the place has something to seduce lovers of seaside pleasures. But it would soon be forgotten that Port Leucate is also a refuge for an exceptional fauna, especially for birds on the artificial island of Corrège. To the north of the peninsula, the Narbonnaise Regional Nature Park in the Mediterranean is a green setting, located between land and sea, which will seduce hiking and nature observation aficionados. The superb cliff of Port Leucate will be the rallying point for all those who want to practice environmentally friendly sports activities in an exceptional natural setting.The exceptional heritage of the surroundings of Port Leucate
North of Port Leucate, it is the beautiful Narbonne that reveals itself facing the Mediterranean. Antiquity, with the remains of the Via Domitia, the Middle Ages, with the Palace of the Archbishops of Narbonne and the modern era, with the Baltard Halls, await travellers seeking a journey back in time. Further south, Perpignan and all the riches of its surroundings impose an urban stopover. After a USAP game, a visit to the Palace of the Kings of Mallorca and the Castillet will allow you to discover the ancestral Occitan culture. Finally, a trip to discover the Cathar heritage, but also the charms of the Canal du Midi, will confirm the travellers' impression of being in a region with an exceptional culture and nature.
Travellers and activities
Port Leucate and its surroundings are a perfect example of the ideal holiday destination for families. Young and old alike will appreciate the large surrounding beaches, especially the Franqui beach. After a short train ride to discover the region's sweetness of life, a detour to the Cathar castle of Peyrepertuse, a citadel built on the Corbières massif, will make the whole family dizzy. There is only one disadvantage to leisure activities, and that is the choice. Between Aqualand Park, Île aux Loisirs and the many water sports initiations available along the coast, no one will be left behind during the stay. A holiday full of fun, discovery and relaxation.Port Leucate for athletes
Port Leucate is an excellent spot for all thrill seekers. In Leucate-Plage or La Franqui, any good sporting stay begins with a wild game of beach volleyball, in a sumptuous setting.

A hike in the Narbonnaise Regional Natural Park in the Mediterranean will conclude a stay dedicated to effort and surpassing oneself.
