This expanse of wetlands is a pleasure to drive through, and the ornithological center is fabulous. For a few euros, you can walk through a wetlands and see lots of flamingos, blue herons, egrets and other birds. There are designated paths past large ponds and marshes to see the birds, and the occasional viewing post. A lovely touch is that... More

What a wonderful part of nature. You can easily see the wild horses, bulla and other wild life without going on organised trips.

The Camargue is surprising and wonderful to visit when the birds are nesting in late May and June. If you want to see them up close then go to the ornothological nature reserve and you can wander for hours and take endless photos of beautiful pink flamingoes plus the occasional beaver up close. Humans are behind tall grass but there... More

The Camargue is not to be missed by anyone visiting the south of France. Wild white horses, black bulls and pink flamingos. A treat for nature lovers, and it's got the seaside too. We ate some of the best food in France in Arles.

We were unprepared for how remarkable it was to see hundreds of flamingos, some as close as 20-30 yards away. Spent all day there!

If you have a car (or feel the need to bike around) the Camargue is a great day out. Call into the Musée de la Camargue on the way to Stes Maries de la Mer (Route D570) housed in a beautiful traditional building, also get a map of the area. It looks like there are some great walks in the... More

After a tiring 4 hour car ride, we arrived in the area to see the place and ride the horse. It was a good thing we arrived at 5 pm, rode the horse and saw a beautiful sunset. My family enjoyed it except for the pesky mosquitoes. Bring a LOT of good insect repellent!!!

On a brief visit we stopped at the Museum of the Camarque. It's unfortunately all in French, although the desk attendant gave us a card with some guidance in English. The museum did have some lovely exhibits and photos and cost only 3 euros for seniors. After we took a short walk on the Discovery Trail and saw rice paddies... More
