Adresse of the Maguelone Beach : Domaine de la Maguelone 34750 Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone

Maguelone Beach is located between Palavas les Flots and Frontignan. This sand and pebble beach (depending on the areas) stretches about 8 km between the Mediterranean and the ponds of Pierre Blanche and Prevost. This is one of the wildest beaches in Languedoc-Roussillon and it belongs to the commune of Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone.

There is a first aid station at the Cathedral of Maguelone, 300 meters after the car park in the direction of Frontignan. There is a pebble beach in this area (see pictures).

There is an area where one can enjoy water activities such as kite surfing between the cathedral and Palavas. Prévost Beach is located in the direction of Palavas (which is the continuity of Maguelone Beach) with a first aid station.

There are two ways to access this beach. From Palavas les Flots, go in the direction of Maguelone. There is a first car park after the bridge and the campsite. This is Prevost Beach. There is a second car park near the Cathedral of Maguelone towards Frontignan about 2.5 km away (the road is closed in summer - access on foot or by small train). It is located 300 meters from the aid station. The second way to access this beach is from Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone. One must follow the direction of the cathedral; there is a car park before a bridge (pedestrian). Walking trails provide access to the beach past the gate of Maguelone and the cathedral (about 2.5 km away – it is possible to take a train depending on the season and time).

Note that there are two private beaches on Maguelone Beach, one near the car park and the other further west (access by train).
