Top 5 sightseeing and activities not to be missed at Valras-Plage:
markets: With its authentic fishing village ambience and its vibrant resort, Valras-Plage is popular for its traditional markets. Its halls summon many local producers. There are fresh and local produce, as well as direct arrivals of fish. The summer market, very attractive, extends the winter in the ambiance and the charming décor of the marina.
The beaches: on the right bank of the ORB, the urban beach of Valras is comfortable and family: supervised by several emergency stations in season, it is accessible to people with reduced mobility and maintained daily. Bordered by many shops, restaurants and nightclubs, it also has beach clubs and children’s playgrounds, beach volleyball courts and sailing schools. Free animations, such as dance classes or fitness lessons, are available in season. The promenade that runs along the 4 km of Valras Beach is a pleasant and secure stroll, punctuated by monumental sculptures, surrounded by villas with beautiful facades, and furnished with unusual services during the summer, like a library in the open air.
The Marina: a living place and a boating paradise, the port of Valras is a very pleasant promenade destination. We stroll with the family on its quays to admire the sailboats and fishing boats that go alongside. You can also rent boats and jet skis, or enjoy the shuttle that connects Valras-Plage to Sérignan-Vendres.
The Palace of the mock-toy Museum: This unusual place amazes small and large with a set of models in Lego and K’Nex presented on 200 m2. Some of the museum’s models have been listed in the Guinness Records. To allow everyone to be inspired by the place, the Palace offers visitors the opportunity to try the building for one hour after the visit.
Fairs and rides: from Easter to September, attractions for children and adults animate the port and the waterfront in Valras. The rides of the Casino on the road of sale offer duck fishing, games of skill and chance and rides for all. In the parking lot of the Théâtre de la Mer, the Grand Fair opens its doors every day from 3 pm to 1 am.
