Not far from the Spanish boarder is this seaside resort complete with funfairs and icecream. Uber busy and reminded me a little of Blackpool in the UK but warmer!

Our overnight stop was just up the coast next to the HUGE inland lake called Etang de Leucate ou de Salses where you will find a much calmer approach to life with man made reefs out into the lake holding candyfloss coloured properties most with moorings as part of the deal.

The aire was about €12 a night including electric but my goodness was it chocked full! Easily over 100 motor homes parked up so not especially tranquil but did afford easy access to the beach and jet-skis for hire.

Icecream for lunch and an explore on the bikes with a dip in the sea was a lovely change to the mountains that have been our playground for the past couple of weeks. They remained in our sights though as the peaks are still visible from the beach.
