The beach! For several years, the Argelès-sur-Mer beach has been awarded the “Blue Flag” label which guarantees a clean and well-cared for beach. The 7 km of light-coloured, fine sand bordering the resort offer freedom and space to enable everyone to enjoy sunshine in their own way.

The nearby beach centre and port mean that you can stroll day and night through the ice-cream parlours, bars, restaurants and shops, especially along the «Allée des Pins» which is home to all kinds of shops.
The village, with a Catalan emphasis, with its church with the crenellated tower (14th century), its maze of narrow streets, ramparts, markets, crafts and festivals… A city referred to as early as the 9th century, a stronghold linked to the Kings of Aragon and Majorca in the 13th and 14th centuries, a village that became French in 1659.
For music lovers, the “Les Déferlantes” Festival will delight party-goers, in the shade of the pine trees, hair blowing in the wind, in the heart of the Château de Valmy d’Argelès-sur-mer.
