Montpellier has a particularly attractive, unspoilt coastline, with many beaches and marinas.
Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone, located 10 km south west of Montpellier, offers 3000 hectares of protected nature. Between sea and lake this is a real change of scenery.
Close to Montpellier, the beaches of the Petit Travers and the Grand Travers (between the Grande Motte and Carnon); those of Palavas-les-Flots; of the Aresquiers in Frontignan; or the Espiguette in Le Grau-du-Roi, are ideal for long walks, for paddling, for water sports, or just lazing about with a drink on a private beach.
The Vélomagg Beach (TAM) operation allows you to go from Montpellier to Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone beach by bus and then onwards by bike. Also, from Montpellier, there’s a tarmac cycle path along the River Lez via Lattes, allowing you to reach the beaches of Palavas-les-Flots 8 km away.
