I have just returned from an early spring trip to the camargue, saw over 120 birds. Lots of walking, nature at its best, I travelled by train to Nîmes then hired a car, the area is easy to navigate, make full days of your visit, and take a French picnic with you.

This is a vey well done birding park near les Stes Maries de la Mer. The viewing stands provide excellent views of the many birds, particularly Flamingoes, that call this area home..

I traveled to provence on a whim instead of the coast of France. With a rental car going to Arles was an amazing trip. Going to the Camargue Park was a pleasant break from the many city attractions. The bird park was great (as others mentioned mostly flamingos) and I was probably there for over 2 hours. The most pleasant... More

Nice birds mostly flamings, over 1 hour walking around, a bit hard to find but you can then stay in the nearest nice town.

Not what I expected when we traveled southward to the Camargue. It was flat, scenic and there were many birds along the estuaries. We even went to a "ranch" where we met the "guardians" who are like cowboys. We saw the prized bulls and the white horses that are unique to this area. It was nice to get out into... More

My absolute favorite journey starts in Saintes Marie de la mer, a nice little village near the sea. For food read my review about PICA PICA. Ideally you have or rent a bicycle. And you'll start your trip on the "digue de la mer" in the direction of a light tower, 13 km away. This journey will bring you in... More

We ended up spending two days in the Camargue. We were there in January so we had to wear long underwear but there were no mosquitoes. My kids LOVED playing at the beach in Sts. Maries des la Mer (and eating churros and french fries there), loved the flamingos at the Bird Park (6-8 Euros admission, 1-3 hours), and LOVED... More

Had always wanted to go to the Camargue to see the flamingos,white horses and bulls and although we saw all of that it did not seem as wild as we expected, too many fields of rice. The weather was not too kind to us also which probably didn't help. We went on an organised 4x4 tour so saw things that... More

The Camargue is a nature reserve that features white horses and flamingos. If you are visiting make sure you get the ferry across. The local goings on are entertaining with horse treks that come over on the ferry and great coffee at the café while you wait
