Destination guide

You'll go wild for Le Grau-du-Roi's untamed beaches

Whether you want a bustling beachfront with lots of activities or endless acres of sandy lands to explore, Le Grau-du-Roi vacation rentals have it. This Mediterranean seaside town is where busy beaches and amusement parks intersect with wild wetlands. The town's been an important fishing area since the 16th century, so you'll miss the boat if you don't check out the huge, colorful harbor of Port Camargue. Take a step or 2 south and you'll find yourself on the edge of Camargue Natural Park, with sprawling coastal marshes, lagoons and salt pans just waiting to be traversed.

Things to do

Lots of fun spots for tots and adult diversions for you

There are lots of options for tots with Le Grau-du-Roi vacation rentals. They'll love the ocean life at Seaquarium, which happens to be next to Babyland theme park and Grau du Roi Mini Golf. Feeling lucky? Roll the dice at Casino Grau-du-Roi. Or sip some wine and head back in time: Impressive medieval walls surround the adjacent town of Aiges-Mortes, where you can also find the Center for National Monuments History Museum and Domaine Royal de Jarras vineyard. Those with a green thumb will go gaga for the 16th-century Montpellier Botanical Garden about 20 miles away.

Activities

Feast on fish and saddle up for some sun, sea, and sand

Wanna pitch a tent right on the beach? You have several campgrounds to choose from. Trot over to the stables at El Rancho and Mas de l'Espiguette for some waterfront horseback riding. And whether you want to sail, kayak, or kick back and relax on the beach, you can do it at Plage de l'Espiguette. The fine sands on this expansive stretch of beach have it all, from dunes to lagoons. Stroll through the many outdoor markets, and stock up on freshly caught fish. And in the summer, get rowdy with the crowds watching medieval-style jousting tournaments on the waterfront.

Weather

A comfy climate for exploring the sandy shores

With summer highs in the 80s, Le Grau-du-Roi vacation rentals are a hot spot for European travelers from June to September. If you arrive at that time, expect busy beaches and cool, refreshing sea temps that peak in the lower 70s during July and August. You might get a little rain on your parade if you come during October and November, when wet skies are likely. If you wander here in winter, you'll find quieter coasts and pleasantly cool weather, with temps rarely dipping below 40 in January.

Natural features

Flamingos flock to these lagoons and dunes

Le Grau-du-Roi has water, water everywhere with lots of salty sea air. You've got the Mediterranean sea on one side and the Camargue Natural Park on the other. The park is a wetlands wonder, and you can spend days traversing the winding network of inlets, marshes, and channels there. The landscape is also peppered with etangs (lagoons) and sweeping stretches of rolling sand dunes. Birds, ducks, and especially flamingos flock to this important wildlife habitat, so don't forget your bird guide!
