Beaches in Perpignan

Summer has arrived and the countryside in the deep South of France has never looked so beautiful, with dancing red poppies lining the roads and the coutryside awash with glorious colourful flowers.

The mercury hit 28 degrees here last Wednesday ( no school for the little ones on Wednesdays) so we hit the beach. The closest beach to where we live is Canet , a perfect sandy safe beach for children. The kids had a ball, diving and splashing in the warm med ( 22 degrees already) and there was a carnaval atmosphere with all the children enjoying the first 'plouf' of the season.

For the older kids , the beach clubs are all opening soon. This is where it all happens in the summer time and they are the places to be seen. Some of them are already open like La Perla in Le Barcares, le Ludo Bulle and Les Voiles Blanches in Canet Plage. Others like L'Ovalie Beach in Toreilles, La Casta in St Cyp and Le Temple Beach in Saint Cyprien will be opening in the next few weeks.
Time to defuzz the legs and start doing those sit ups!!!!

The region has so much to offer in the way of diverse beaches, with the long sandy beaches of the North to the rocky inlets of the Cote Vermeille ~ there is something for everyone with safe kiddies beaches, good snorkelling and kayaking waters and stunning seaside walks.
