The mild temperatures of the Mediterranean Sea and the multitude of small coves of the Vermeille Coast favor the development of a very specific and particularly rich fauna and flora. To discover them, our Mediterranean Pyrenees destination offers you numerous possibilities for water sports.

Under or on the water, the activities are many and varied!

Take advantage of your holidays to take part in a family sea trip or rent your own boat for a private outing. To put your head under water, you can choose between snorkeling and scuba diving with our qualified instructors. Unless you are tempted by a catamaran ride or stand up paddle?
