Our opinion on the Racou Beach

Adresse of the Racou Beach : Le Racou 66700 Argelès-sur-Mer

Racou Beach in Argelès-sur-Mer marks the limit with the large beaches of Languedoc-Roussillon and the little creeks of the Cote Vermeille. This beach is less frequented than those of downtown. We find a sailing center and a beach volleyball court along with a few sea shops here. On the left is the harbor and on the right is a rocky coast with little creeks. In the summer, this beach has a lifeguard.

To get here from downtown Argelès-sur-Mer, follow directions for the harbor (port), then take Avenue d'Avinguda de la Torre d'en Sorra. We find a large free parking lot on the left. Several shops can be found in the main street of the Racou neighborhood near the beach.
