Argelès to Banyuls-sur-Mer is a short but fabulous coastal drive on a crisp autumn day, offering panoramic views over the bay of Collioure, row after row of steep, terraced vines, and a sparkling Mediterranean ever present throughout the drive.

This super little walk takes place in the Capcir valley, near to Les Angles, and is suitable for all the family as it involves minimal height gain and, subject to weather, can be done, summer, winter and also on a mountain bike.

This walk starts and ends at Paulilles, south of Port Vendres – the town has recently claimed the beach for its own, but that does not change the unspoiled beauty of its pebble-dashed sands and crystal clear blue water, nestling beneath immaculately terraced vines.

This walk starts from Palalda, near Amélie-Les-Bains. With bar, postal museum that also sells crafts, and a sprinkling of artists/craftspeople, all of which may or may not be open depending on the day and time of year, the pretty medieval, cobbled village is well worth a visit itself.
