Our opinion on the Coussoules Beach

Adresse of the Coussoules Beach : Grau de la Franqui 11370 Leucate

Leucate’s Coussoules Beach has about 8 km of sand, extending from Grau de la Franqui up to Port la Nouvelle. Close to the resort of Franqui, there is a paying carpark for camping-cars (6€ for 24hours) and a supervised beach area (densely populated during the summer season). By deviating towards Port la Nouvelle (by foot), the beach becomes completely deserted up to Montilles Beach in Port la Nouvelle (free access to the latter). It is generally the area for sand-yachting and kite surfing. On the right, you have a beautiful view of Cap Leucate. The beach is nice but we found it densely populated especially near the lifeguard station. However, it is the ideal place if you want to deviate and take advantage of a totally unspoilt non supervised beach. Dogs allowed after the kitesurfing area.

From the Franqui, this beach is well signposted, follow directions for Les Coussoules. Cross the lakes; parking is shown next to a campsite (as well as a camping car area).
