4 (good) reasons to stroll in Argelès-sur-Mer in spring

One destination, 4 seasons… and just as many good reasons to come to Argelès-sur-Mer. Autumn, winter and summer bring their own surprises, but spring brings a very special atmosphere. From flower-filled villages to intimate beaches and colorful markets, the season of love reveals the region in all its bucolic glory. And unusual!

1 - To pass from basket to plate

In spring, our growers’ stalls fill up with sun-drenched fruits and vegetables. Juicy tomatoes, mouth-watering peaches and tangy lemons… The markets unveil a lovely array of citrus colors and scents, to the delight of visitors. Whether you prefer a traditional, organic or night-time market, Argelès-sur-Mer is bound to have a market to tantalize your taste buds.
It’s sure to please!

Good profit*.

There’s only one step from picking to eating. Or rather, a basket! To learn all about our local produce, there’s nothing better than a trip to one of our local producers. Starting with Le Domaine de la Mer Blanche, where everything is produced organically. On the menu: yuzu liqueur and orange jam. A real treat!

*Bon appétit

2 - To avoid discovering yourself with a thread

In Argelès-sur-Mer, you can explore the Mediterranean all year round. Effervescent in summer, wild in winter, it reveals its bohemian side in spring. From Racou to La Marenda, via Plage des Pins, the area abounds in intimate spots where you can contemplate the sea at your leisure. Organize an impromptu photo shoot on the sand or race in the water… Either way, you’ve got free rein.

 Take the plunge

Still haven’t found your iodized racou*? The secret, unspoilt beach of Le Racou offers the perfect setting for alternating between idleness and sea bathing. Extra view of the Côte Vermeille, please!


3 - To get lost in the flower-filled lanes

From the Notre-Dame del Prat church to the Casa de l’Albera, it’s the perfect place to discover the region and its heritage. It’s also the perfect place to stroll through narrow streets and cayroux facades, all decked out in flowers in the season of love. Romantic, unusual, authentic: the choice is yours!

4 - For the combo hiking and backpacking

On the Catalan coast, tulips, peonies and daffodils are popping up, while the sun beams down on the Mediterranean. A veritable mille-feuilles of colors!
