The 5 essential activities in Sète
1. Water sports. With the Mediterranean Sea reaching out to visitors, it would be a shame not to enjoy water sports. The pond of Thau next door is a second pretext for experiencing thrills on the water. Scuba diving allows you to see the colourful fish living on the seabed. We also discover magnificent types of corals. It is possible to practice sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and many others. Finally, sea kayaking is perhaps the best way to discover this preserved coastline.
2. Discover the museums. The city has seen the birth of many artists such as Paul Valéry and Georges Brassens. Thus Sète has preserved this artistic and cultural soul through its many museums offering visitors permanent and temporary exhibitions. Among the many museums are the International Museum of Modest Arts, the Museum of the Sea, the Paul Valéry Museum, the Espace Georges Brassens, the Centre Régional d'Art Contemporain du Languedoc Roussillon and many others. These are visits that can be made with children to introduce them to a part of the popular culture of France, including the work of Georges Brassens.
3. Strolling around the city. The entire city was built around its port, which was used to trade the region's wine. Thus the port itself deserves to be discovered for its colours, its architecture, the beauty of the boats being anchored there... Sète is also covered with canals, giving an undeniable charm to this municipality founded in 1666. Of course, connoisseurs of Italy will not feel like they are in uncharted territory. The colours, atmosphere and tall Haussmann buildings are just some of the shows offered to those who know how to take the time to look up.
4. Taste the local cuisine. As we can imagine, the cuisine of Sétoise is based on fish products. Fresh water or seawater, whatever, all this blends with Italian, Spanish, and Algerian culinary traditions to create a unique and tasty cuisine to discover absolutely. The known or unknown specialities are macaroonade, stuffed squid, rust cuttlefish, famous fish soup or the famous Tielle which is a kind of pie filled with octopus.
5. Swimming on the beaches. Entirely accessible by the bicycle path, the large beach of Sète is in fact the natural separation between the Thau pond and the Mediterranean Sea. The current is weak and the sand pleasant. It is an ideal place to spend a good time with the whole family under the sun of the South of France.
