Our opinion on the Vieille Nouvelle Beach - Salines Beach

Adresse of the Vieille Nouvelle Beach - Salines Beach : D232 11430 Gruissan

Gruissan’s Vieille Nouvelle Beach (or Salins/Salines beach) is the most untamed beach of this small resort. Little known and uncrowded (see our photos taken in August), it is especially popular with kite surfers (they say it is the windiest spot of the Mediterranean - so swimming is not recommended). The environment is virgin of any construction and is surrounded by pleasant dunes. Naturism is tolerated.

Access to this beach is quite difficult due to an unmaintained road (but that's probably the reason why it is uncrowded ...). To go to it, head towards Salins St Martin by the D232. After the bridge, follow the direction for the Clos de l’Estret by the street of Vieille Nouvelle. After 200 meters, you come to a track (very narrow entrance, impossible to go with a camping-car). The beach is about 2 km away, there is an unmaintained car park at the beach.
