For instance you can find two different amusement parks – Luna Park, a more traditional ride and theme park and Argelès Adventure that highlights zip lines and obstacle courses. Both can provide a full day worth of fun and excitement.
There is also miniature golf, mountain biking, go karts, cycling excursions and horseback riding. For those wanting to enjoy the sea, you can head to the beach and participate in sea kayaking, snorkeling, scuba, sailing, fishing, wind surfing, and tubing. As you can see there are numerous options to keep you busy.
Argelès has a bustling seaside promenade that winds for kilometers and has beach shops and bars along with restaurants of all kinds. It is similar in feel to a Myrtle Beach with everything available for enjoying a vacation focused around the beach. We visited the area and were astounded by the wide, white sand beach that stretches for more than 7kms. One could spend an entire day lounging on the sand, enjoying the beautiful water and relaxing while soaking up the sun.
If non-stop activities or the beach aren’t your thing, it is still worth visiting this town for the many Romanesque ruins, buildings and heritage sights dating back to the 12th century and the gorgeous Valmy Park. And if you are a nature lover you will want to plan to explore the Albères Mountains. This is an area of deep valleys and multiple large summits (some reaching to 1000m) that is perfect for walking or extensive hiking. Various types of trees and vegetation cover the hills and there is also a protected nature reserve that includes a beech grove. You can travel on the trails, imagining as you go, that the smugglers from the past may have also taken these same routes.
While staying in Collioure, if you are looking for a place close by with activities to please everyone, be sure to include a trip to Argelès-Sur-Mer. It is a quick drive or can be accessed on the municipal bus for only €1.
