Around ten seaside resorts in Hérault share the family summer tourist trade. Unlike the seaside resorts of Var, they all have large sand beaches. Staying in a privately owned Hérault holiday rental property is eminently possible.
The three largest seaside resorts in Hérault are the Grande Motte, Sète and the Cap d’Agde.
Stay in a Grande Motte holiday rental property and enjoy the wide expanses of sand and shallow waters. This Hérault seaside resort is very lively and unusually composed of high pyramids.
Choose a Sète holiday rental property and explore the old port with its colourful buildings and various businesses at the foot of Mont saint Clair. There are some lovely walks along the sea front or from Corniche.
Stay in a Cap d’Agde holiday rental property and enjoy this lively resort with its 14 km of fine sand beaches away from the major roads. Here you will find golf, a spa centre, marine centres and an Aqualand as well as the ‘Ile des loisirs’, a true paradise for both children and adults.
Close to the department’s major seaside resorts can be found small family resorts often situated in old fishing ports or close to natural reserves, lakes or dune areas.
Stay in a Carnon beach holiday rental property and benefit from a popular seaside resort with 7 km of natural beaches separated from the road by dunes (the Grand and petit Travers beaches). The pleasure port connects to the canal between Rhône and Sète before joining the Canal de Midi.
A holiday rental property at Palavas les Flots is perfect for enjoying this resort’s 7 km of fine sand beaches, beautiful natural surroundings and the canal that divides the resort itself. Palavas lighthouse offers a superb panoramic view.
Stay in a rental holiday property at Villeneuve les Maguelone close to Palavas, a village typical to this area. The beach and cathedral at Maguelone are both worth a visit.
