Point Zero beach near Montpellier, France


x Point zero

Whilst La-Grande Motte might not be everyone's cup of tea, with its pyramid hotels and modern housing suburbs, there is no denying that the Point Zero Plage is absolutely stunning and certainly one of the best of the Montpellier beaches in Languedoc. It is perfect for kids and adults alike. There is also plenty to do after the beach as well. You can take your pick of restaurants and bars along the front. Also over the last few years La-Grande Motte has been building itself a reputation as the French equivalent of La Managa for high class sports facilities. If you are staying in Montpellier and looking for a good beach to go to, I would avoid Pavalas Plage and head just further north to La Grande Motte.


Point Zero beach - Montpellier beaches, France

point zero beachTo get to La Grande-Motte from the south of Montpellier, take the A9 up to junction 29 (the airport exit). Follow the D66 and D62 all the way to La Grande-Motte (it is signposted all the way). From Nimes and the north, take the A9 down to junction 27 at Lunel. Now follow the D61 all the way to La Grande-Motte. When you enter La Grande-Motte follow the signs to 'Point Zero'. 

You can also reach La Grande Motte by public transport from Montpellier. The #106 bus runs from Montpellier city centre to La Grande Motte.

In a list of the best beaches in Languedoc, Point Zero will always be near the top. With the redevelopment of La Grande Motte, the resort itself is re-establishing itself as a premier French holiday destination. Personally, I always like spending time in La Grande Motte. I find it very green and lush and it has a real relaxed holiday atmosphere. As an alternative to the beach, you could always visit Espace Grande Bleu - a swimming pool complex with water slides.
