The beaches
Sète offers to the amateurs leisure and of swimming twelve kilometers of thin sand beaches which separates the city from the Pond of Thau. This beach has received for several years the 'blue house' prize for the quality of its water. The beach of the cornice which makes it possible to join Marseillan stretches along the ground bench which separates the pond from Thau of the Mediterranean. You will be able to try beach sports or just relax and bathe in blue water of the Mediterranean sea.

The town
This fishing port (the first of Mediterranean France) begins its history in Greek antiquity. It is Louis XIV who decided that Sète will become a home port for its navy. Thereafter it became the starting point of the Canal du midi by the Mediterranean sea. Today this port is also a beautiful city which offers on top of its access to the sea, restaurants directly supplied by the fishing boats of the port, cafés, big businesses, museums (in particular the museum Georges Brassens) and many more unexpected beauties. Sète enables you to discover the colors of the Mediterranean sea but also to learn a rich ancient history and last but not least the gastronomy sétoise. Enjoyed without moderation…
