Narbonne Plage is like a smaller San Antonio in Ibiza. It lacks any character and is full of tacky shops and bars.
We have actually been spending our beach days on the stretch of sand between old Gruissan and Narbonne Plage. A beach fortunately not filled with the people staying in Narbonne Plage.
On our first full day we spent all day on the beach. On the second and third we saw sights in the mornings before spending the afternoon on the beach.
Today we cycled to old Gruissan and I'm really pleased we did. It's made up of very narrow streets built in concentric circles round a Barberousse fort. It's very picturesque and a nice change from the new-build architecture we've seen otherwise.
All four days here have been incredibly windy. I bought a beach chair as a way of keeping above the sand blowing across the beach. Our campsite is relatively sheltered although it was so windy last night a tent on a pitch across from us blew down. We wound in our awning before settling into bed, just for piece of mind.
I'll end today's blog with a link to the Telegraph's top ten French beaches, one of which is Gruissan.
