Valras Plage beach, South of France best beach

valras plage south france3Valras Plage is the Southern-most beach close to Beziers. Historically, Valras Plage was a small fishing village. At the end of the 19th Century, a railway line was built from Beziers to Valras Plage and following the rapid rise in popularity from day trippers, a resort was quickly built up around the beach. Although the railway line (and later a tramway) have now disappeared, there is a direct bus service from Beziers to Valras Plage (Line 3 and Line E) and the beach remains very popular with the locals (Biterrois - residents of Beziers).

You can drive to Valras Plage, France, one of two ways. Either from junction 35 of the A9 along the D64 or from junction 36 of the A9 and and follow the road past the pleasant medieval village of Vendres.
