Valras-Plage, a tiny town with lots of room for relaxation

If you want to visit a quaint seaside getaway that's off the well-worn path of southern France, Valras-Plage is your perfect place. This fishing village-turned-beach-town is in the newly formed Occitanie region, right in the middle of the Mediterranean coast. The cozy coast has tons of charm and, of course, lotsa shopping options, with lively pedestrian promenades along the broad beaches. Many Valras-Plage vacation rentals are on the beach or sport seaside views. About 10 miles inland is busy Beziers, the neighboring town that's loaded with historical landmarks and a cool canal that weaves through the city.

Things to do

Canals, cathedrals, a casino and lotsa cool stuff for kiddos

If you need a break from the beach (as if!) visit Casino de Valras-Plage on the waterfront. There are lots of options for les enfants, like the thrill rides at Europark Vias Plage theme park, water slides at Aqualand Cap D'Agde, or the Palais de la Maquette LEGO museum. Valras-Plage vacation rentals are only 10 miles from the neighboring town of Beziers, so stop there to see the impressive 13th-century St. Nazaire Cathedral towering over the Orb River. In nearby Narbonne, the historic Canal de la Robine is another scenic waterway that you should find a way to see.

Activities

The perfect plage and village for a vacation by the sea

Grab your towel for some R&R: Valras-Plage boasts about 2 miles of uninterrupted sandy beaches. If you're feeling "tents," check out 1 of the many beachfront campgrounds. There's also a marina and 2 street markets with all the local goodies. Fill up on fresh oysters and mussels, try some goat cheeses from the mountainous inlands, and wash it down with local wine. The Languedoc-Roussillon region, now known as Occitanie, is 1 of the world's largest wine producers, so definitely tour a vineyard or 5. For some exercise, try some water sports, or horseback riding on the coastal trails.

Weather

The coast is clear in the winter, and busy in the summer

Summer's the best time to hit the beaches, but it's also the busiest for Valras-Plage vacation rentals. July highs are in the upper 80s, which make the 70-degree water temps feel deliciously refreshing. Additionally, neighboring Beziers hosts the famous Feria de Beziers bullfighting tournament in August, so many travelers arrive in late summer. Rain showers usually happen in November and early spring, but don't expect any snow on this coast. The winter holidays are a quiet but still fun time to visit, with Christmas festivities and lights aplenty, plus mild lows in the 40s.

Natural features

Bustling beaches and wildlands to wander over yonder

Valras-Plage is all beach, bebe, with soft yellow sand melting into the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The mouth of the Orb River spills into the sea at Valras-Plage, and you can admire the scenic southern France landscape from a canoe or kayak.
