The municipality of Mauguio Carnon has held the Blue Flag label for several years.
This ecolabel promotes a policy of tourism development that respects the environment and the population. This labeling is based on complete and evolving criteria articulated around several major themes:
Thus, it is the sign of a sustainable project for clean beaches and harbors, excellent quality bathing water, and a commitment at all times to minimize the impact of tourism and maritime activities on ecosystems.
Eager to discover the surroundings, you take the direction of the beaches and venture across the lido that winds between Carnon and La Grande-Motte. At this point, you will enter a natural space that stands out for the ecological quality of its flora and fauna as well as for the singularity of its landscape environment which includes dunes, wetlands, wooded areas and beaches.
You may have the chance to admire one of the 10 animal species and 13 plant species among which you can find orchid specimens such as the summer spirea, protected at the national level, or the flamboyant Orchis des marais with its purple petals of which the grazed area of the Grand Travers shelters one of the largest concentrations in the region.
The ponds of the Grand Travers are also the place where many amphibians gather during the reproduction periods, while the reptiles are fond of the dry and sunny environments along the cordon.
A part of this lido is classified by the Natura 2000 label.
Accessible by car, bicycle or on foot for the more athletic, in a green setting between the sea and the lagoons, Saint-Pierre Cathedral, a major testimony to Romanesque art, is a monument that cannot be ignored on our coastline.
