Vias Plage - Languedoc beach, South France
I reckon that Vias Plage beach, South France, is the only beach in Languedoc that my wife actually knows. I am sure that she does know other Languedoc beaches, but every time we pack the kids in the car with all their surf boards and inflatables and I ask "Right where are we headed?", the response is always "Vias Plage!". She claims she likes it because you can find a quiet spot and the water is shallow. But I reckon it has more to do with her secret car parking space which only involves a 15 second walk to the sand.
Vias Plage is the closest beach to Beziers, France (just 15 kms). You can easily get to Vias Plage by public transport. There is a train which goes from either Agde or Beziers to the nearby town of Vias (and then catch a shuttle bus to the beach) or you can take a bus from Beziers (Line 210) to Vias.

Vias beach bar
There is a great beach bar at Vias Plage called Chiringuito that is really popular with our French friends. The bar serves some excellent Mojitos and there is a simple but very good bar menu. You can also hire sun longers or sit on the deck over looking the beach. The main restaurant is located on a covered terrace. It is probably advisable to book ahead during the high season.
