A fantastic beach. Large and spacious and far from crowded. The sea is very shallow for quite a distance and there are plenty of bars scattered along the many KM’s of sandy beach. We loved it.

We hung out at Grand Travers twice and found the water warm, the beach wide and nice and the club amenities nice but a little expensive. Not much by waves but a great place for beach walking.

We visited during the whitsun half term to find La Grande Motte very quiet for the first couple of days, it got much busier over the weekend when a ferrari convention came to town. Lovely place, would highly recommend.
