Itinerary

On your left, you will see the old mill, and, on the right, a path that will lead you to the Loin Fountain. Walk around it and you will arrive at the path. Turn left on to it and then turn right to Chemin Neuf.

Turn right on to the path and then take the second path on the left. You will arrive at La Franqui headland. On the right is Haute Franqui Fort (former signal tower). Take the stairs leading to the path along the foot of the cliff. Note, this is a dead-end. Follow the cliff towards the military semaphore. Be careful on windy days.

Very close to the semaphore, you will find La Plagette (suspended dune, unique in Europe). The access is difficult, so be careful. You will access Leucate-Plage via the rocks and coves. Otherwise, take the high road: after the lighthouse, veer right and turn left on to the stairs that will lead you to Leucate-Plage. Take the road that climbs up to the village.
