The beach
La Grande Motte is a seven kilometers long and well maintained sand beach. The beach is supervised by three rescue stations, the showers and medical care are placed along the beach and all kinds of activities and leisures are available. Viliplanchists and amateurs of Kite-surfing are very keen on this beach, as well as other sports like the jet-ski (away from the swimming zone). You can also benefit from the arranged beaches which offer various services: hiring of pedal boat, canoe but also many bars and restaurants. The city of the Grande Motte east is nowadays a first class holiday resort of Mediterranean sea and Herault to spend time with one's family under the sun and by the sea…

The town
La Grande Motte is known and set appart for its buildings in the shape of pyramids made by the architect Jean Balladur. They are astonishing and weather you like them or not you will remember them for sure! Born in the end of the sixties, it could exist thanks to the removal of mosquitos of the grounds surronding it. It owes its name to the wine field which existed before the city. Many green areas were created in and around the city. All the city was thought for tourism even if the Grande Motte is inhabited all the year by of Héraultais. She offers nautical activities in particular on the Pond de l'Ouest but also a golf, a tennis, a nautical center… and of course, essential element, a center of Thalassotherapy which developed in the Nineties. All is accessible to the visitors, cafés, shops, restaurants, banks as well as a casino…
