Make the most of your stay to explore the Pyrénées-Orientales

The Pyrénées-Orientales or P.O. (a nickname that’s so much easier to say!) is a sublime region filled with fabulous beauty spots. So whether it’s just for a quick trip close to the campsite, or a longer excursion by motorway, you’re certain to find yourself in the midst of unforgettable scenery.

Near the campsite

Did you know? The African savannah awaits you just a few kilometres from Le Barcarès. The Sigean Safari Park concentrates the very best of Africa, less than thirty minutes away by road: vast open areas home to big cats, giraffes, zebras, elephants and crocodiles. An incredible experience and so many unforgettable memories for your kids! The Little Yellow Train is another veritable institution ready to take everyone from youngest to oldest deep into the heart of the beautiful Catalan countryside and its regional nature reserve, set between sea and mountain. Collect up the family for a trip to visit the Cathar castles, Tautavel and its prehistoric man, the Salses fortress or the Rivesaltes memorial. Each is steeped in history and definitely merits a place on your must-visit list! Nearby Leucate is an ever-popular spot for those who love nature and sports in the great outdoors: each year it hosts the Mondial du Vent, an international rendezvous for all board sports enthusiasts.

A little further afield

Perpignan is more than worth a visit: a city radiant with sunshine, superbly renovated buildings, plenty of shopping and a car-free town centre. So come and take a stroll between two trips to the beach. And then, just a quick hour’s drive from the campsite by the coast road or dual carriageway, discover the fascinating markets and picturesque centres of the attractive villages that look out across the sea: Saint-Cyprien, Collioure, Banyuls, and onward all the way down to Spain... Art-lover? Then don’t miss a trip to the modern art museum in Céret or follow in the footsteps of Salvador Dali in Cadaqués and Figueres, before a quick dip in the little creeks along the northern coast of the Costa Brava. And Barcelona? It’s hardly any further at all and a visit isn’t just possible but highly recommended! The Pyrénées-Orientales, a fabulous voyage all by themselves!
