Nestling at the heart of the Corbières Maritimes, in the Regional Natural Park of Narbonne in the Mediterranean, is the seaside resort of Leucate, which has a Blue Flag label, eight beaches and 18 kilometres of fine sand! A dream for lovers of relaxation and water sports...

A paradise for fans of board sports, Leucate and its little resort of La Franqui, full of retro charm, are great places to practise kitesurfing, sand yachting, windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding and also kite-flying, thanks to the Tramontane wind which blows more than 300 days a year...

Leucate is also a typical village with a busy, lively square, a naturists' area, and a huge marina, Port-Leucate, which is one of the largest marinas in the European Mediterranean!

It is also a favoured spot for nature walks, like for example along the Cap Leucate cliffs, along Coussoles beach, listed by Natura 2000, or by the banks of Lake Salses-Leucate. Be sure to visit the Lake House (Maison de l'Étang), in the oyster-farming centre, which seeks to raise awareness of the natural heritage of Lake Salses-Leucate.

The high point of the board sports calendar is when the Mondial du Vent de Leucate-La Franqui takes place every year in the Easter holidays. As well as kitesurfing, windsurfing and stand-up paddle board competitions, there are numerous demonstrations and lots of entertainment!

Additional information
Leucate

Leucate is a real common plural, the displayed singularity. It is the gateway to the Regional Natural Park of Narbonne in the Mediterranean.

This former island became peninsula today is still the center of a marine environment, nestled between its 16 km of Mediterranean coastline and 31 km from Pond shorelines, channels, islands and basins Harbor. Leucate consists of five distinct urban entities between which extend three large protected natural areas, of great interest.

Activities close to nature which are the main resources of the town:

Viticulture, almost a century of tradition. Grapes, sun, soil, three major ingredients to create exceptional products.

Fishing and oyster farming, tradition again, if the first is experiencing some difficulties, shellfish are booming, and many healthy eaters who pay homage to the leucatoise oyster.

Olives, almonds and honey production is just enough to feed the hungry Leucatois and their tourist friends.
