Located on the banks of the Lake Thau, the largest pond of Languedoc, Balaruc-les-Bains has the distinction of forming a peninsula facing remote management Sète 7 km. Montpellier is 28 miles southwest. Between the scrubland and the sea, in the Bassin de Thau, Balaruc-les-Bains is located on a peninsula that enters the waters of this lake 20 km which is considered here as a "small sea".

This location gives it a marine microclimate mitigated when the sun is omnipresent (2600 hours of sunshine a year), the average high temperature. The fresh sea air, the proximity of the Mediterranean and the Thau lagoon are exceptional assets for Balaruc-les-Bains.
