Named after the river that flows through it into the Mediterranean, the Hérault is an exceptional destination in more than one way. Its coastline overlooking the Mediterranean, its sunshine, and its varied landscapes are undeniable assets for holidaymakers. The 34 houses very beautiful caves such as the Clamouse cave, the Demoiselles cave, the Devèze cave and the Labeil cave. The monuments of Montpellier, Béziers and Pézenas, the city of Molière, are cultural treasures that delight lovers of history and architecture. The 34 has several interesting museums for all ages (Musée de l’Ephèbe, Musée Lego), very well designed theme parks (Cap d’Agde aquarium, zoo and planetarium in Montpellier) and remarkable gardens (Jardin de Saint-Adrien). In summer, you will enjoy strolling along the waterfront walks and in the night markets that animate the seaside resorts.
On the coastal side, the swimming and water sports are king. The water sports centres offer a wide range of activities such as kayaking, stand up paddle, water skiing, jet-skiing, diving, sailing, windsurfing, boat trips and sea fishing. These sports can also be practiced in fresh water, especially at Lake Salagou. The 34 has hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails on foot or by mountain bike and cycle paths (including those along the Canal du Midi). Far from the crowds, the waterfalls and gorges are perfect places to reconnect with nature, refresh yourself and practice whitewater sports such as rafting and canyoning (Sautadet waterfall, l’Eventail waterfall, Les Forces waterfall, Colombières gorges).
