If you're looking for great beaches, you'll be spoilt for choice at Saint Cyprien. The North Beach is popular with windsurfers, while Rodin Beach is situated near the main market area and offers a sports area in high seasson, then there's the central Maillol Beach near the shopping area, Lagoon Beach and South Beach! For a change of scene the pretty Jardin des Plantes is just 5 minutes from a beach, with more than 800 species of plants it's a real green oasis.
Head inland into the mountains and an hour away is medieval Villefrance-de-Conflent, a UNESCO world heritage site where high ramparts still enclose the houses. Take the Little Yellow Train from here to Latour-de-Carol 63km away for a wonderful scenic journey.
