What to do in Grau du Roi?
Le Grau du Roi also has an aquarium, the Seaquarium, with many marine mammals, Mediterranean fish and tropical fish. Thanks to the Seaquarium, you will be able to go on a fun outing with your children who will discover many fish they didn’t know existed.
Le Grau du Roi is known for its lighthouse which is classified as a Historic Monument since 2010. You will be able to admire the Grau du Roi lighthouse during your walks on the dike. In this seaside resort located a few kilometres from the Mas des Rièges, you can go to the town’s bullring.
The arenas date back to 1961 but the proposed programming is modern. So you will have the opportunity to see shows and concerts. The arenas also regularly organise Manades, Camargue races with bulls or horses. The manades are typical of the Camargue culture and are part of the whole folklore of this atypical region.

You will have the opportunity to board a boat for a fishing trip with family or friends. You can also book your place on a catamaran to go for a ride along the coast. Some providers even organise acoustic concerts on the boat, an unforgettable experience not to be missed!
