Water-based activities

Supervised beaches

Everything's been carefully thought out to ensure that families can relax on the beach in complete security. Six supervised bathing areas are located along Argelès’ huge beach to help you get the most from the sea with complete peace of mind. Take your children to see the lifeguard, who will give them a coloured wristband. If they get lost, they'll be brought back to the first aid and rescue post. Added peace of mind for all families with young children.


Argelès’ lake is one of the best suited for sailing. Situated in the campsite, Club Emeraude awaits you on the beach for equipment hire or classes, including windsurfing, catamaraning and stand up paddling. You can also hire kayaks and pedal boats in addition to deckchairs. Every member of the family will find something they enjoy.



Several diving clubs propose an amazing undersea adventure around the Banyuls-sur-Mer nature reserve, discovering some of the historical wrecks which are today home to countless fish varieties all along the rocks which descend steeply to the south of Argelès. Enormous conger eels, shoals of sardines and ocean sunfish live here along with a few dolphins, which you may spot if you're lucky.



The Argelès-sur-Mer Canyoning Park has a trail connecting 14 pools, slides, a 100-m rope course which ends up in the water, not to mention an underground river. You can experience jumps of between 3 to 7 m as well as abseiling under the waterfalls. From 8 years’ old upwards.


In the heart of an outstanding natural environment in Ceret, Inextremis Aventura proposes canyoning, rafting, white water swimming and kayaking activities in a magnificent setting just 30 minutes from Argelès-sur-Mer.


The Saint-Jean-Pla-de-Corts lakes

Located 25 minutes from the Camping Les Marsouins campsite between the sea and the mountains, the Saint Jean pla de Corts lakes are a cool and refreshing place to stop off. A wake park, with cable skiing, provides a great opportunity to discover wakeboarding, kneeboarding and wakeskating… in short, any exciting activity which involves slipping or sliding across the water. Stopping here is a "must" when you have teenagers in your group! Young visitors will enjoy the inflatable bouncers at the lake. Don’t forget your camera to share your happy memories in the evening, on the terrace of your 4-star mobile home!
