Argelès-sur-Mer in summer: 4 reasons to succumb

The weather’s fine, the sky’s blue and the sun’s out in force at Argelès-sur-Mer. From the beaches to the mountains to the village, the region is synonymous with summer and idleness, much to the delight of holidaymakers. With your head under the water or your feet in the sand, there’s plenty to do… and plenty to see! Open the festivities, the summer season can begin!

1 - To get out the mainsail

…and glide under the winds of Argelès-sur-Mer. On the beaches of La Marenda and Les Pins, wetsuits and boards are the order of the day. Whether you prefer paddle or kayak, the important thing is to master the movement and take your time. For a change of pace, consider the XXL stand-up paddle. From 2 to 10 people: the more the merrier!

Notice to axurit* customers

Are you the intrepid type who loves thrills and spills? In Argelès-sur-Mer, swap your kayak for a towed buoy. In a group, get ready to face the jolts. The first to fall in the water loses!


2 - To make the memory pine

In summer, Argelès-sur-Mer reveals a whole new side. Intense, bewitching and radiant, it invites visitors to experience the abundance of fine weather. To make sure you don’t miss a thing, head for the allée des Pins and its lively boutiques. Now’s the time to meet the locals, chat and share. But above all, to fill your shopping basket!

3 - For the combo Pyrenees + Mediterranean

To have your feet in the water or your head in the clouds… Why choose when you can do both? On the Catalan coast, we love to go from the sea to the mountains in the same day. And there’s no better way to do this than to venture into the heart of the Albères massif on a hike in the Pyrenees. What’s on offer? A beautiful dip in the Porteils creek. That’s the Catalan dolce vita!

 A little freshness

Fancy a break in the shade after your shopping session? A stone’s throw from the shopping aisle, the pinewood offers a peaceful setting for a quiet interlude. On a table or a mat, it’s the perfect spot to read a few pages of your current book and enjoy a picnic with the kids.

Déu n'hi do*

It’s possible to combine the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean in one hike! In Argelès-sur-Mer, take the coastal path and discover the Côte Vermeille. Where the Albères massif meets the Mediterranean, this trail will leave you breathless.


4 - To make adrenaline rush

On the Catalan coast, summer is the perfect opportunity to create memories that last. And capture! With family or friends, opt for a thrilling evening at Luna Park. From the Grand Huit to Crazy Dance, this amusement park is the ideal place to fill up on thrills. But also for sharing simple moments with loved ones. A ride on the Ferris wheel, some hot churros and you’d like the moment to last indefinitely…

The big thrill
