Perpignan is situated 8kms inland from the Mediterranean coast. If you are looking for the best beaches near Perpignan, then there are many to choose from, depending on your preference. To the north of Perpignan, France, the beaches tend to be wide and flat and often prone to a lot of wind. Thus beaches such as Le Franqui and Le Barcares tend to be popular with wind surfers and kite surfers. Some of the popular beach resorts near Perpignan, such as Argeles sur Mer, St Cyprien and Canet Plage tend to be more popular with families. In my opinion, the best beaches Perpignan has to offer are on the Cote Vermeille.
