Nimes Information

information on NimesLa Grand Motte is one of the largest marinas on the Mediterranean which was once just a large area between the sea and lagoons. A plan to restructure the coastline and the architect Jean Balladur transformed it into a city with buildings shaped like pyramids surrounded by shady terraces.  It is a city full of pine trees, rose bushes and lush tropical vegetation.  There are two large natural parks surrounding the town with over 20 hectares of protected plant species.

In an area known as the Petite Camargue, the beach resort of La Grande Motte is a protected by rows of sand dunes and surrounded by pine forests.  The water in the lagoons change with the seasons becoming less salty during the cooler months.  You will see amazing colonies of flamingos here which are attracted by brine shrimps which are a mollusc which gives them their fabulous pink colour. Close to the beach are thirty-four tennis courts offering lessons and hosting tournaments, and on the sea and at the port you will find sailing, windsurfing, diving and rowing.

La Grande Motte is just 25 km from Nîmes, and 10 km north of the nearest motorway (exit Nîmes/Montpellier axis). There are two 20km expressways linking La Grande Motte to the A9 motorway.  There are also regular rail and bus connections to Nimes.

Just to the  east are Port-Camargue with its brand new marina, and Grau du Roi which is  a working fishing port bordered by 18 km of fine sandy beaches from Boucanet to l'Espiguette offering a multitude of sports and leisure activities. It is a family seaside resort the largest marina in Europe (over 5,000 berths).  The Vidourle Water Sports Centre offers scuba diving, fishing, sailing school, windsurfing, fun boarding, catamarans, sea kayaking, water skiing and La Grande Motte Golf, Le Golf Club de Campagne and Golf de Nimes Vacquerolles nearby.

Grau du Roi was originally a small fishing port between the lagoon and the sea. Grau means passage and Grau du Roi means King's Passage which was a name adopted by the port.  Originally Grau du Roi was just a few fishermen's huts lining the coast, but its development during the nineteenth century separated it from Aigues Mortes and enabled it to retain its traditional charm.
