Canet en Roussillon, the sunny beach resort!
Canet en Roussillonis the second city of the Pyrénées-Orientales after Perpignan.
There are only 12 kilometres from Canet en Roussillon to the capital of the Pyrénées-Orientales. This city full of character combines tradition and modernity in a wonderful way.
Canet en Roussillon has a rich history, still to be seen in the remains of its viscount's castle, but is nowadays fully focused on tourism and the future.
Its 9 km of beach attract every year many people who love to relax, but they can also indulge in many sports and leisure activities.
Besides, along the seaside and close to the marina, the many shops, bars, restaurants, casinos and nightclubs make Canet one of liveliest beach resorts in the Roussillon. On the main square La Mediterranée, concerts and shows also participate in the summer dynamism of this city!
We also note that close to downtown there isthe Lake of Canet Saint Nazaire, a protected lagoon of 600 hectares with an exceptional biodiversity. Even if there are mostly flamingos gathering here, no less than 230 bird species have been counted...
