A day at Frontignan-Plage


A 7-kilometre long strip of sand bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and almost 320 days of sunshine a year, that's the setting that awaits you in Frontignan-Plage. The seaside resort even has one of the major assets of the Thau Archipelago: a transparent beach that is almost deserted... So many reasons to go to this charming town!

The Lido beaches

Situated to the north-east of Sète, the seaside resort benefits from an exceptional geographical situation between the sea, ponds and garrigues and offers as many beautiful sandy and pebble beaches on either side of the marina, which have been awarded the Blue Flag for over 25 years.

You can choose between Port Ouest, Port Est, Les Plaisanciers, Le Grau, La Bergerie, l'Entrée or the Aresquiers beach.

The Aresquiers beach

An air of the end of the world. That's what you'll find when you choose the Aresquiers beach, which stretches over about 7 kilometres between Frontignan and Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone. 

To make matters worse, 5 kilometres are closed to road traffic: no cars, no motorbikes, just you in a magnificent face-to-face with the sea. But being close to paradise has a cost, that of the effort! You will have to walk in the middle of nature to enjoy a transparent, almost deserted beach where bathers (and sometimes swimming costumes) become scarce as you go along. 

On the sand, a few pebbles polished by the waves, driftwood that you have fun picking up and, in the hollow of your ear, the song of the cicadas, which does not manage to cover the noise of the waves...

Allow 20 to 30 minutes' walk to reach the most isolated corners. For cyclists, the Aresquiers beach is also accessible by the track that links Vic-la-Gardiole to Frontignan. 

Tip: For a more "secret" atmosphere and a magical panorama, try to reach the Nau creek in Sète. Just splendid!

Animated beaches

In July and August, the town of Frontignan organises numerous activities to enjoy the beach and have fun at the same time. 

On the West Bank beach, for example, there is a fitness and well-being area right next to the nautical centre. Gym, yoga and weight training classes are also offered, alternating with sandball, beach soccer and volleyball tournaments.

My holidays with my dog

In 2023, for the summer season, the municipality is creating areas dedicated to your canine companions, and making access to the beaches from numbers 34 to 40 (Saint-Eugène car park, as far as the limits of the Frontignan beaches towards Vic-la-Gardiole) accessible to dogs.
And if you wish to go for a ride with your horse, you should know that they are also allowed on the beaches from October 1st to March 31st, from access n°31 to the East of the beach, on the edge of the shore (forbidden to go near the top of the beach and the dunes). 
On the other hand, they are forbidden on all the beaches of the commune from 1st April to 30th September inclusive, 24 hours a day.
