56,78 km cycling route from Sète to Le Grau du Roi

On this Mediterranean Cycle Route stage, keep towel and bathers at the top of your pannier! For lunch, taste local shellfish accompanied by a Muscat de Frontignan wine, the perfect reward for tackling this watery scenery. Towards Montpellier, the route meanders between lagoons and beaches. Make a detour to Saint-Pierre de Maguelone Cathedral, the Gardiole Range in the background covered in typical garrigue scrubland. Then head for the lighthouse at Palavas-les-Flots. Next, the great pyramids of La Grande Motte call, man-made reflections of the grand Pic St-Loup rock inland. At the port-resort of Le Grau-du-Roi, why not try some nautical sliding sports, witness a Camargue bull run or savour local produce?
