Discover this lively parc, close to the soft sands and warm Mediterranean waters of Argelès-sur-Mer

Hands up if your family likes beaches? Thought so. Take a look at Argelès-sur-Mer’s impressive stretch of pale, soft sand and you’ll see why Hippocampe is a firm family favourite for beach holiday fans.

Add warm, clear Mediterranean waters, an excellent range of facilities nearby and water sports galore and it all adds up to a great location - just a mile from your parc. In addition to the inviting pool complex, complete with water slides, test your skills with the parc’s range of sports facilities. Or you could take part in the occasional talent contests held during the evenings at La Sirène, Hippocampe’s larger, sister parc across the road. La Sirène’s lively night-time fun can sometimes be heard, together with some road noise.
