Discover Leucate-la-Franqui

On the coastal strip that separates the Étang de Leucate from the Mediterranean sea, you'll find miles of preserved beach wilderness, as well as three choice destinations: Leucate-village, Port-Leucate and the seaside resort of La Franqui. The sea winds here attract thousands of kite surfers from all over the world. It's also a great site for other water sports, hiking... and sampling Leucate oysters.
