  • Carnon

    The seaside resort town of Carnon-Plage is one of the nearest to Montpellier (13 km away, around 15 minutes by car). It is the most popular local seaside resort among natives of Montpellier.
    Here you can discover 7 km of fine sandy beaches which stretch from the port of Carnon to La Grande-Motte. The various beaches are well-loved by families as they boast a gentle incline, which makes swimming easier. The town centre’s beach is the best suited for children, as it boasts a playground on the beach and a kids’ club. This beach is also monitored. In this first zone, stretching from the Plage du Centre to the Plage Carnon-Est, you’ll find many little houses along the seafront (two floors maximum). The road is out of sight. From the Plage du Petit Travers, the environment is completely different. The houses are replaced with dunes, which make the area feel more rugged and wild. It's also the perfect place for lovers of kite-surfing. Indeed, the first kite-surf school in Europe was founded in Carnon.
