What to see in Argelès

It includes a shady forest, playgrounds, picnic areas facing the sea, and a pathway with panels to discover the history and heritage of Argelès-sur-Mer.

When should you go on vacation to Argeles sur mer?

  • April-May for peace and quiet
  • June for Sant Joan
  • July for Déferlantes
  • August for sunshine and night markets
  • September-October for the calm of the off-season and the beauty of the countryside

The climate in the Pyrénées-Orientales is mild, giving visitors plenty of time to discover Argelès and the surrounding area. In summer, of course, entertainment is in full swing, temperatures are at their hottest and the sunshine is ideal for beach fun. July and August are the months with the longest opening hours at theme parks and tourist attractions. Night markets and other cultural and festive events are also more numerous. July is also the month of the not-to-be-missed Déferlantes music festival.

Would you prefer to enjoy a little more peace and quiet, discover the Argelès of the Argelésians and enjoy your next vacation at a more leisurely pace? From April onwards, the Languedoc region lends itself to tourism. The months of May and June are particularly recommended for enjoying the longest days of the year at the seaside, swimming on less crowded beaches and taking advantage of low-season rates on vacation rentals and outings. The month of June is also marked by a number of important events in the Catalan region, including the famous Sant Joan, which is particularly celebrated in the Pyrénées-Orientales. The perfect opportunity to discover Argelès in all its authenticity!

From September onwards, the off-season is also a great time to bring the whole family to the gates of the Côte Vermeille: the beaches empty out, the weather slows down, and the shorter days mean you can enjoy the nightlife earlier. Soon, the Albères massif will be decked out in sublime autumn colors: the perfect time to ride your mountain bike or go for some of the most beautiful hikes in the world!

Argelès-sur-Mer’s most beautiful beaches

Among the most beautiful beaches in Argeles :

  • Racou beach: isolated to the south of the port, the sandy Racou beach is the last stretch of fine sand before the rocky landscapes of the Côte Vermeille. The landscape then opens up to an alternation of heavenly sandy and pebble coves all the way to Spain. We like it because it’s less crowded. It is equipped with beach volleyball courts and a nautical center.
  • Plage des Pins: a family beach, accessible from the resort center and lined with shops. It boasts a number of facilities, including a water sports center, and is accessible to people with reduced mobility. Bordered by the pine forest, it’s also very close to the casino.
  • La crique du Porteil: a little-frequented pebble beach, ideal for those seeking peace and space. Creeque du Porteil is a popular snorkeling and diving spot, renowned for its biodiversity and clear waters.
