Taking a camping holiday in the Camargue – a lively yet unspoilt area, full of passion and tradition – is like travelling to an unknown land. You’ll be amazed by its never-ending vistas, by the diversity of the flora and fauna of the salt marshes and huge lagoons stretching away as far as they eye can see. Come and discover the exceptional variety of species that inhabit the unspoilt environment of the Camargue Regional Natural Park including pink flamingos, Camargue horses, birds and bulls. Taking in 73km of coastline from L'Espiguette to La Gracieuse, the park boasts a rich and varied marine habitat high in biodiversity and the chance to observe molluscs and shellfish, fish, turtles, dolphins and birds.
