Lake of Thau

The biggest lake of the Languedoc

If you take national road 612 towards Sete, you will encounter the Etang de Thau. It is separated from the Mediterranean by a thin line of sand. With its 7,500 ha of surface running from the foot of Mont St Clair to Sete, the Bassin de Thau is the largest lagoon in the Languedoc Roussillon region. For an unforgettable trip to the Les Mimosas campsite, don’t miss this magnificent natural site. Plan a full day to visit the lagoon, since there is a lot to see and do.

The Etang de Thau has a unique reputation. In fact, as it is the largest lagoon in the Occitania region, it has a wide variety of flora and fauna. Not only will you appreciate the magnificent view, you will also be impressed by its biodiversity.

Around the lagoon, there are many sights to see. With a stop at the Etang de Thau Museum in Bouzigues, you will learn more about growing oysters and mussels.

If you still want more, go explore the Acrobates Forest, on the Montagnac road, near the Etang de Thau.
