Canal du Midi
Portiragnes, the ideal holiday destination!
Mediterranean Sea, sun-kissed vineyards and the Canal du Midi are just a part of the very special décor offered by Portiragnes and your Sandaya campsite in the Hérault. And if Portiragnes naturally attracts innumerable holidaymakers, it has also retained all the wealth and beauty of its natural landscapes. In fact its long sandy beach is renowned as one of the most beautiful in all Languedoc-Roussillon!
Facing out across the sparkling blue sea, enjoy the natural setting, mobile homes with every comfort and luxury services offered by your campsite in Portiragnes. This is where you’ll find all you could want to savour a fabulous seaside holiday! And when you’re not relaxing in the water park with its swimming pools and waterslides, make the most of the campsite’s sports grounds, free entertainment for all the family and, of course, the sublime scenery that surrounds you. Béziers, Agde and Valras-Plage are all waiting to offer their very warmest welcome!
Visit Portiragnes with the family
The first one on the beach is the winner! And the coastline at Portiragnes has plenty of beaches to offer you, from Vias Plage all the way to Sérignan. Protected from any form of urban development by their endless dunes, they are a real delight when it comes to spending a peaceful afternoon with the family!
Our favourite corner? No question about it, it’s La Grande Maïre to the south of Portiragnes, a vast protected natural area on the shores of the Mediterranean. A veritable mosaic of landscapes, this lagoon with its uncanny resemblance to the Camargue, offers an opportunity to watch horses, bulls and migratory birds by the hundred in the midst of its remarkable plant life. The perfect spot to play the apprentice naturalist!
Visit Portiragnes as a couple
If the shoreline at Portiragnes promises long afternoons on the beach, there are some gorgeous walks that await you in the village. Around the Saint-Félix church, the charming narrow streets of Portiragnes invite you for a leisurely wander on foot or by bike. It would be hard to find a more romantic spot!
At the top of the list of amazing places that Portiragnes invites you to discover is, of course, the famous Canal du Midi, a truly masterful work of engineering that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean. You might not be able to take a dip, but you can certainly hire your own boat or sit back and follow the guide as you enjoy a little cruise. You prefer dry land? The banks shaded by their innumerable plane trees are perfect for a walk!
