The Camargue

A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and Regional Nature Reserve, the Camargue delta opens into the Mediterranean and includes the three communes of Arles, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and  Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône. 

Famous throughout the world for its pink flamingos, the Camargue is a diverse area of reed beds, sandy beaches and salt marshes.

A vast wetland area situated in the Rhône delta, the Camargue is an important centre for Provençal culture and a fascinating destination with its rich biology, varied flora and fauna, diverse landscapes and unique agricultural activity.

Whether you’re a nature lover or interested in local traditions, travelling on your own or with the family, you’ll enjoy discovering the natural landscapes of the Camargue which can be explored on foot, by bike or on horseback.
