Around d'Argelès-sur-Mer

Rounding the Cape
3 getaways from Argelès-sur-Mer
Banyuls, Collioure, Cerbère or Figueres… There’s a reason these destinations have such a southern flair. Just a stone’s throw from Argelès-sur-Mer, our 3 getaways will make you want to extend your vacation. In the sun!

Bunyetes, calm & idleness Set course for... Collioure

Fancy taking to the open seas? Just 4 km from Argelès-sur-Mer, beautiful Collioure opens its doors to you. And its port! Facing the sea, the pearl of the Côte Vermeille offers you a sunny getaway. With your head under the water and your feet under the table, experience la dolce vita Catalan style.


It’s better to walk to Collioure. And much more beautiful! Follow the Sentier du Littoral along the cliffs and through the creeks to Collioure. Allow around 1 hour from Le Racou. I promise, you won’t miss it!

* Please note

Blue, blue, blue Set course for... Cerbère-Banyuls

If you feel like a fish in the water, this is the perfect getaway for you. Departing from Argelès-sur-Mer, take a boat to the Banyuls-Cerbère reserve, France’s first Marine Nature Reserve.
Mask on nose, fins on feet, set off to encounter exceptional underwater fauna. Don’t forget to touch with your eyes!

Olé, olé! Set course for... Figueres

There’s only one step between crossing the line and crossing the border. Or several!
Figueres promises a colorful Spanish (and Catalan) experience. One thing’s for sure: Salvador Dalí’s hometown has plenty of surprises in store.

Menja i calla !

In addition to its Dalí museum, Figueres is also renowned for its Catalan specialties. An opportunity to enjoy a good escalivada. Extra pan con tomate and patatas bravas!

Pssst: to stock up on local produce, every Thursday morning Figueres comes alive with its colorful and flavorful market. THE event not to be missed!

*Eat and shut up!
