Pink flamingos in Peyriac-de-Mer

Admire wild flamingos at Peyriac-de-Mer in the south. A real treat for bird watchers, admire the pink flamingos in the wild on the Languedoc coast. If someone asked you where you can see flamingos living in the wild, Peyriac would be unlikely to be your first answer! Peyriac-de-Mer is 20 minutes from Narbonne and home to wild flamingos all year round. A beautiful place to walk, wooden walkways cross the sea to help you get closer to these magnificent birds. There is ample free parking by the water and you can stroll around the small village and dine in one of the lovely restaurants in the pretty village square.

I continue my journey to Peyriac de Mer and on the old saltworks, taking the wooden walkways, I can see other flamingos. What magnificent landscapes rich in fauna and flora!

The ideal season

It is easier to see them during most of the winter but they are observable all year round, when there is little wind.

A guaranteed favorite for the village of Peyriac-de-Mer

A sure favorite for this village which revolves around a charming square where you like to sit in the sun on the terraces of restaurants and cafés, a stone's throw from the town hall and the church! The surroundings of the town benefit from beautiful addresses of winegrowers and wine estates, including several in organic farming.


After crossing the old saltworks on the photogenic wooden pontoons, the Doul pond awaits your gaze and much more since swimming is possible there (very salty water!). While respecting the paths, continue to the hill of Mour from where you embrace an incredible view, 360°, on the ponds, the sea and the massifs.
