The photograph is of Valras Plage (Beach)which comprises several kilometres of beautiful sandy beach with a gentle slope into the sea. Valras itself has many restaurants and cafes as well as amusement areas and a considerable nightlife in the main holiday season. Out of the main season, like most of the other nearby beaches, it is quiet and peaceful. In season it is busy and bustling. Adjoining Valras is Serignan Plage, about 20 mins in the car, which has two lovely family beaches and a naturist section. Swimming is safe on the gently shelving beach.

Other beaches nearby are at Cap d'Agde, Narbonne Plage and many others you will find on the map within a 20 minute drive or so. All are sandy, all have visitor facilities and ample car parking.

Topless bathing is acceptable on all beaches but full nude bathing is only permissible on two beaches. The world famous Cap d'Agde naturist beach and associated complex (over a mile of sandy beach where clothes are definitely not an option about 20/25 minutes drive)or at Serignan Plage about 15 minutes from the house.
