We walked along the cycle track this morning and were very disappointed with our first visit and sight of the Med. Dirty sand,overturned rubbish bins and uncared for verges.A whiff of dog urine in the air.Definitely prefer the Vendee. Port area was much cleaner and picturesque.

The word Retirada was used by historians to describe the exodus of nearly half a million Spanish Catalans across the Pyrenees into this part of southern France in early 1939. Historically it was probably the single biggest ever recorded influx of refugees into the country. Close to one hundred thousand of these souls were 'accommodated' along this beach, a fact that many are not aware of. It is now a beautiful sandy beach, ideal for family holidays and for taking some relaxing time out in one of the most intriguing areas of France but for some it has many sombre, dark and haunting memories of a period of hunger, illness, indifference, suffering and death.

Saw review for La Passage restaurant on Trip advisor and viited this restaurant with my wife and daughter. We were not disappointed. We each had a fish meal which were excellent and beautifully presented. The bottle of Chardonnay recommended by so pleasant and helpful Veronica was just perfect. Christof the Chef/owner, also visited each table and was well known to the many locals there- always a good sign! We were so pleased that my wife and I visited again and again- brilliant. I had"Sole on the bone" and my wife had "lamb shank", with again a beautiful recommended wine. Veronica looks after everybody so well!. This is a must visit restaurant for us.

Spent an afternoon with lunch visiting when staying in Argeles. Although the beach and town were attractive, it lacked the character and diversity of Argeles. It all seemed more modern and sterile.

The weather and the sea is not stable. Wind and waves hinder visitors to enjoy the sea. There are lots of activities around (mini golf, carting, ponny ride, etc).
