    Tour Barberousse is a tower located in the center of a little fish town in Mediterranean Sea, in the South of France. Really views of the town with this tower in the middle are wonderful. Also, it is possible to walk in the old streets and go up to the tower, from where you can see very nice views of the town, the sea and the surroundings. Authentic! Very recommendable.

    Definitely worth a short hike and visit - several parking spots are possible depending on how long you want to walk. On the way you pass some photogenic vineyards and ruins - the road is well marked but rather narrow at times but not dangerous - just watch when you go around bends in the road. The parking closest to the chapel and cemetery handles perhaps 30 cars. It is true that there is some repair work underway on the path up, also on the walls, but it should not hinder most people - but on a hot day, if you are rushing up to get into the chapel before its midday closing time of 1220, the hike, which climbs about 100 meters in altitude, should not to be taken lightly. And beach shoes are definitely not appropriate unless your ankles are in superb shape and you don’t mind walking on irregularly-shaped rocks. But this is all logistics - and once you pass by the moving monuments to sailors lost at sea, and the paintings and models of ships that went down in the sea, you should be pleased that you made the effort to get there. But do check the opening and closing times and dates - while there is a great panoramic view at the chapel level, it is more enjoyable to see it during a visit to the chapel.

    This nature reserve is vast. I guess 30 by 10 kilometers. You can walk from St. Pierre, Narbonne Plage, or Gruissan. The walks all inter lead, so start and use your sense to follow the coast line or go any circular route. At worst you can always head towards the sea and walk back. The vineyards, forests and cliffs bring out the beauty of nature. It is relaxing to walk any length that suits you.

    A delightful, colourful little 13 th century church, colourful and reminiscent in many ways of (although smaller than) the church of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, it was originally fortified. The layout is unusual and shows its maritime affiliation from centuries back. It is well worth doing a Wikipedia search before you visit the church and also the castle above it in this very old part of Gruissan.

    This beach is in the same time typical and special. Typical beach of this area : large stripe of sand in between the sea and a salted water lake. Specific because of the wooden houses aligned on the verge of this beach which gave its name to the beach.

    Second visit to this cozy and beautiful winery. First time we actually came to see Pierre Richard who can be seen here weekly. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Presentations of wine are good and I like this type of wine anyway. Tastings are nice you as you can choose your wine. Price is ok for the wine. Gets busy in July and August. Movie theatre. Groups welcome. Free entrance.

    Not crowded in the off-season it was still a treat to walk the beach, collect seashells and dip my feet in yet another world ocean.

    Fun and friendly service. No dearer than a local bar and free crisps! An amusing and safe on the pocket place, worth a look.

    Église Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption is a little church located in the center of the old town, close to the main tower, of Gruissan, a tiny fisher town in the South of France. It is located near upstairs to go up to the tower. It is a church built in the Middle Ages, which is small, not more.

    I was fascinated by many of the artisan creations in this place, a very unexpected and exciting range of arts and crafted items incuding a great range of cotton rugs, wicker sculptures and felted lampshades. A delightful place to find something unusual to furnish your home

    There really is a daily market that you can go to in one of the Gruissans (Plages des chalets, Village, or Port), not to mention the daily fish market and the nightly crafts market (July and August). All required masks (during covid restricted period). The brochure available at the office of tourism is vital, and free!

    I first came across this area by seeing a reference to casemates - which only led to more questions about why there was no tourist guides to what one can only imagine was an impressive World War 2 collection of bunkers that have been retained probably because of the difficulty of removing them - only one has Berlin-Wall-like graffiti - but with an appropriately impressive panoramic view of 360 degrees. More ancient history is also featured, with reconstructed structures and informative panels. There are several ways to get to the top - parking is available very close to the rue des casemates, but the walk up stairs beside the Gruissan Cave building is perhaps the one that offers the nearest access from the Port area. Best to go in clear weather and before it gets too hot.

    Would not recommend several of the more serious rides for the faint-hearted, but the water ride was quite acceptable and fun. But teens seem to like whatever makes them scream, and the park has several like that, but also many for the younger ones. We noticed effective cleaning/sanitizing between rides, and social distancing was practiced - all of the ride operators and concessionaires were masked. Nice evening entertainment.
