From the centre of Aigues-Mortes, cross the canal via the D 718 road, then take the Rue du Port street on your left. It leads you on to the Canal du Rhône à Sète, which you ride alongside up to the entrance to Le Grau-du-Roi. Take care crossing through Le Grau-du-Roi, which is a bit complicated, especially as the way is not signposted for the time being. Then use the cycle track along the D 255 taking you to the Pont des Abîmes bridge. Next you continue along the seafront in the resort of La Grande-Motte, along a path shared with pedestrians, so take care. Lastly, join the lovely Lido cycle track linking La Grande-Motte to the resort of Carnon-Plage.
A cycle track leads right to the Plage de l'Espiguette, a huge, magnificent beach beyond Le Grau-du-Roi. From the centre of this port-resort, head to Place de la Fête Foraine, the square where the cycle track begins, leading you safely right to the Plage de l'Espiguette.
