Marseillan Cyle hire

Cycle hire on the doorstep and a new dedicated cycleway can quickly get you around the southern edge of the Etang to the beaches at Marseillan Plage and then along the sandy strip to Sete. For the more enthusiastic cyclist there are many quiet, well-surfaced back roads amongst the vines and foothills to enjoy.

Marseillan Beaches

For beach lovers there are miles of soft sandy beach and the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean are good for swimming and monitored in summer months.

Just a little further down the coast lies Cap d’Agde, one of the largest marinas in France where sea tours in glass-bottomed boats can be taken.

Excellent golf courses are in close proximity at Golf de St. Thomas, Beziers or the 27 hole course at Golf du Cap d’Agde.
