Portiragnes Plage

Portiragnes Plage is a small beach resort in the south of France, located about 100 miles north of the Spanish border, 10 miles south-east of Beziers and (usefully) only 4 miles from Beziers airport, which Ryanair flies to from a number of UK destinations. The resort has a number of good restaurants and bars and hosts vibrant local markets on three days each week. As regards accommodation, this part of France is camping territory and Portiragnes Plage has two campsites but only one hotel! Portiragnes Plage is a perfect spot for a “crash-out” type holiday but for those who want to get out and about there are several interesting day trip possibilities.

Camping Club Les Sablons  Website Trip Advisor Page Les Sablons is a large 5-star campsite located right on the beach at Portiragnes Plage. Its facilities include a bar, a restaurant, a takeaway, a small supermarket, a newsagents, a bakery, and an impressive pool complex with 5 pools and two large slides. There is a range of accommodation available for rent onsite and of course you can also bring your own tent or caravan. Children and teenagers are well catered for in Les Sablons: both Eurocamp and the campsite itself operate daily Mini-Clubs with a wide range of activities to keep the young ones occupied. (Avenue des Mûriers, 34420 Portiragnes-Plage) Hotel Le MIrador  Website Trip Advisor Page Le MIrador is a small, family-run hotel located right on the beachfront at Portiragnes Plage. In front of the hotel is a small public car park and then the sand dunes and blue flag beach. While nothing fancy, the rooms are clean and well-equipped, with (very efficient) air-conditioning, wifi, a terrace or balcony, satellite tv, minibar and room safe. The staff are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The hotel would make a good base for a short beach break, but might not suit families or those requiring other facilities such as a swimming pool etc. (4 Boulevard de Front de Mer, 34420 Portiragnes-Plage)

Grenadine  Trip Advisor Page Restaurant Bar Grenadine is a small, family-run bar/restaurant tucked away next to Le Buddha on the beachfront. The food is French, with lots of freshly-prepared meat and seafood dishes. In addition there are nice, thin-crust pizzas, with the Pizza Andalous a special treat. The restaurant offers good, no-nonsense food at sensible prices and unsurprisingly local people eat there in abundance. Service is polite and efficient and you are really made to feel at home. Worth a try. (Avenue de la Tramontane, 34420 Portiragnes) Le Buddha   Trip Advisor Page This busy, beachside restaurant serves an interesting mix of French, Italian and Thai dishes. The food is excellent and not overly expensive and the service is prompt and friendly. The atmosphere, created by a combination of the Thai-style decor and all the hustle and bustle, is very conducive to having an enjoyable meal. Can recommend. (25 Avenue de la Tramontane, 34420 Portiragnes) La Gibrine  Trip Advisor Page La Gibrine is a smaller restaurant than Le Buddha and offers a more intimate dining experience. The classic French food served here is probably the best to be had in Portiragnes Plage. If you have children with you the staff will also be able to suggest something suitable for them. While at first seeming more expensive, given the standard of food and the absolutely first class service La Gibrine represents fantastic value for money. Strongly recommended. (Avenue de la Tramontane, 34420 Portiragnes) Marie Jack   Trip Advisor Page This restaurant is located very close to La Gibrine in the main square of Portiragnes Plage. It offers fine, well-presented French food. Portions are large and the service very efficient and friendly. Not all staff speak good English, but in case of difficulty they will ask a colleague to help out. A very pleasant dining experience all round. (Place du Bicentenaire, 34420 Portiragnes) Perle Marine Poissonerie   Trip Advisor Page This is a small fish and seafood restaurant which offers a menu of mainly fish dishes but with some meat dishes such as lasagne and chicken paella. The restaurant is frequented by the local population and you will also see the locals come and go buying fresh fish and seafood from the counter for their own meals at home. The quality of the food is very good, the service very helpful and courteous and prices are more than acceptable. (12 Boulevard de la Tour du Guete, 34420 Portiragnes)
