Serignan Plage, South France beach

serignan plage500Serignan Plage is a popular South France beach destination for thousands of holiday-makers each year. Serignan Plage has a wild and natural look to the beach and offers plenty of space to spread out and enjoy beach games. The beach is protected by wild sand dunes at the back, which gives the beach a lovely character. The beach has a wide exapnse of fine golden sand and you can see down to the Pyrenees Mountains on a clearday. There is a small naturist section at the far left of the beach (near the salt marshes), but otherwise this beach is frequented by families (many staying at the local camp sites) and workers clocking off work in nearby Beziers. If you get bored of the beach you can always check in to the local campsite and use the swimming pools and water slides (for a small daily fee).

 

Serignan Plage, South France beach

Serignan Plage has over 3km of beaches. Serignan Plage first received its Blue Flag award for the quality of the beach and the water in 2009 and it has retained this European quality standard ever since. The beaches at Serignan Plage are cleaned daily. Serignan Plage is actually made of of 5 separate beaches. The main beach is called La Grande Maire, then there is the La Chapelle, the Seoune, then the naturist beach (or noody doody beach as it is called in our house; before you finally reach the Orpellières Plage at the end of serignan Plage. There are 3 Life Saving stations (at La Grande Maire, Seoune and Orpellieres Plage. Toilets are located in the main car park at La Grande Maire plage. The car park at La Grande Maire also has a disabled access facility (amphibious chair lift). Every year the local municipality works hard to protect the beach from erosion, including planting 'desert plants' to protect the sand dunes at the back of the beach from wind erosion and constructing 'groynes' all along the beach using Chestnut wood to prevent tidal erosion of the beach.

 

Serignan Plage France

Serignan Plage itself is a small coastal resort that is home to a number of popular campsites, small supermarkets, 4-5 restaurants (including the popular Latino Beach bar), a number of bars and cafes and a small marina. There is a small weekly market (which has an excellent fish stall). Serignan Plage virtually shuts down during the winter, when all you will find is a few lone dog walkers. There is an active naturist community in Serignan Plage, which has its own dedicated campsite with a connecting naturist beach.

Serignan Plage weather

During the summer months, the weather in Serignan Plage is what you would expect - long, hot summer days, with a cooling breeze. Normally, during July and August you can expect an average temperature of around 32oC and around 10-11 hours of sunshine per day. There is normally little chance of rain, but when it does rain it is usually in the form of heavy showers. September and October are the wettest months of the year, but in between the showers, it is perhaps the best time to visit the beach, it is almost deserted. During the Winter, the weather in Serignan Plage can turn quite blowy, with strong coastal winds ripping across the beach. The sea water temperature from January to April is probably too cold forall but the maddest of people to swim in (my youngest son being one of them). Like September, May and June are really nice times to visit Serignan Plage because there are very few people on the beach as the campsites are yet to fully open.
