The oyster farm village

Just choose from the rows of huts and meet an oyster farmer in this unique and unusual site on the Grau lagoon. He’ll share his expertise with you. Then you’ll get to taste the produce, out on the terrace in a colourful decor dotted with oyster shells and driftwood.

Take your pick from oysters, mussels and prawns, all washed down with a glass of white from the Cap Leucate wine cellar. Enjoy your seafood without moderation!
