With nearly 12 km of equipped beaches with the Thau lagoon in the background, Sete is renowned for its seaside facilities and beautiful stretches of sand which makes it very popular with tourists.

Several lifeguard stations are spread along the 12 km of beaches. You can also find numerous restaurants and many activities. Going south, you reach the beaches of Marseillan that follow on.

The port of Sète is undoubtedly the most picturesque part of the town. With the coming and going of the boats, the fishermen landing their catches and tourists who admire the show, the harbour is a must. In the area of La Marine, you will find many restaurants where you can enjoy the specialities with colourful surroundings.
