The holm oaks of the Gardiole form the green lungs of Frontignan. When the slopes become more gentle, vines take their place. Contrasts are even more striking when you take in the ancient salt marshes, the sea and the lakes. Frontignan, set between green and blue, offers an enormous diversity of panoramas and protected spaces.
Frontignan is set in a naturally Mediterranean environment - a long strip of sand stretching 7 kilometres. These beaches are ideal for family holidays and assure complete safety for children. There are many leisure activities on offer, and plenty of space to enjoy them. Rescue posts, showers and toilets are at regular intervals along the beaches. Three special access points allow people with reduced mobility to take advantage of the pleasure of bathing. Every year since 1996, the European blue flag, sign of environmental quality, has been hoisted over our beaches.
The Salt Water Lakes: a paradise for birds, birdwatchers and walkers
The Ingril and Peyrade salt water lakes, the lake of gulls...Frontignan’s lakes offer magnificent panoramas from sunrise to sunset, and a remarkable ecosystem.
Here you’ll find pink flamingos, gulls, white stilts... plus teals and many other kinds of ducks. Meet them for a moment of magic. Numerous strolls are organised by the tourist office to help you discover all the natural wealth of this region.
The Gardiole hills
The rolling hills of the Gardiole are rich with tracks and pathways. At their base lie vineyards, lakes and the lido. Escape towards the summit - on foot, horseback or by mountain bike- take advantage of remarkable landscape and panoramic views of an unlimited Mediterranean horizon.
The history of Frontignan is intimately entwined with the vine. Vineyards spread gradually from the foot of the Gardiole hills, nestling in the green slopes, facing the lakes and the Mediterranean. They benefit from an exceptional climate, with long periods of sunshine and sea air, giving the famous Muscat wine of Frontignan its naturally sweet palate and golden colour, reknowned all over the world. The vineyards are also an opportunity for walks of discovery — gourmet strolls organised by the tourist office will bring you closer to the essence of this landscape and its flavours.
