id like to ask about beaches round montpellier,in which villages are the best? Maybe any swimming polls on the beaches? If u have any pictures,could u send it?
Don't know about near Montpellier but over in the Camargue there is a gorgeous sand beach at Stes. Maries-de-la-Mer.
Have you typed Montpellier into the VT search window above? Do this and then check Tips for Things to Do and see if you can find some beach tips.
I can't e-mail any of my Stes. Maries de la Mer photos because they are all over 256 KB, the VT limit for attachments. However, GLENSWORLD has a very nice Saintes Travel Page. Go to http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/890a3/169ce/4/ and scroll down his Tips of Things to Do until you reach "Bath" and there is a great photo of the beach there.
I was born in Montpellier. I can say you that there are several unknown beaches, which are taked up by tourists and others by people from montpellier and neighbourhood. Don-t go to Palavas-Les-Flots or La Grande Motte! It's annihilated by a lot of tourits, and it's dirty. On the other hand, you can go to Carnon, especially "Le Grand Travers" (20/30 minutes around Montpellier).
The beaches around Le Grau du Roi are less invaded (go to l'Espiguette, it's beautifull).
You can see on this website : http://www.ville-legrauduroi.fr/
I hope this will help you!
"Bon voyage" as we can say in french,

go to Sete and climb on the Mount Saint Clair. The photo was shot from Notre Dame de la Salette. From the Mont Saint Clair you discover a marvellous view on the sea and on the narrow strip of land which separate the Etang (Pond) of Thau from the Mediterranea.
The white spots in the horizon are the oyster parks which make the reputation of the pond. The best oysters come from Bouzigue.

LAKE OF SALAGOU. This lake is...
LAKE OF SALAGOU. This lake is not natural : it was recently created by flooding a valley. The rocks are red, the trees are green and the water is blue, together they make a coloured spectacle.
In the neighborhood, do not miss : 1)Celle, a village which owed to be flooded but the calculation was wrong and the village is still visible but protected by a wall to prevent vandalism.
2) Cirque of Mourèze : with its curiously shaped rocks.
3) Villeneuvette : a village erected arround a factory of 17° century.
Around Montpellier you can...
Around Montpellier you can find lots of pretty places and cities. One of them is the ancient castle city AIGUES MORTES. The old place still has it's city walls completely intact. Read more about this lovely town in my TRAVELLOGUE!
I finally came here in February 2003, and realised it is NOT actually next to the sea - it's about 15 minutes away. Still, a nice town all the same, it has all the things most other French towns have, and is quite charming. There is a large student population, and of course dog people. As you can see, the tramway is very sleek.
Stes Maries de la Mer
"Harbor & beach"
The bodies of the two Saints had been discovered during an excavation ordered by René d'Anjou in the early 15° century.
The relics have been put in the church. But they were partially destroyed during the Revolution.
Some remains have been saved and they do still miracles as it is proved by the ex votos which surround the statues.
"The Black Virgin"
Ste Sara is the patroness of the gyspsies who make yearly a pilgrimage in Stes Maries.
She has some suits and often she wears several of them.
