A region with a lot to offer. 214 km of coast boasting fine sandy beaches and rocky coastline at the foot of the Pyrenean mountains, exceptional weather, a hinterland rich in heritage sites and landscapes brimming with history all combine to ensure that the Pyrénées-Orientales area offers you the very best of the sea and the mountains, both in summer and in winter.
With the sea, mountains and hinterlands in such close proximity, it is really easy to stay in shape in the Collioure area! Explore the trails on foot or by mountain bike throughout the year, windsurf, paddleboard, kitesurf, jet ski in the summer, dive and enjoy winter sports in the mountains in the winter... Sport is a year-round activity !
From Collioure, city of artists, to the Romanesque buildings (Elne cloister, Saint Michel de Cuixa abbey...), from the wine-growing areas boasting wine-production treasures to the big festivals (Visa, Déferlantes...), the département is overflowing with a wealth of possibilities for culture lovers of all kinds.
