City: Montpellier State: N/A Country: France
Carnon lies in the eastern part of the town and nearby the beaches of Montpellier. While the architecture may be less original than elsewhere, the small size and layout of this seaside town 13 kilometers from Montpellier prevents one from feeling oppressed by the concrete blocks that prevail. At the centre of the town, the small modern port is surrounded by cafés and games of Petanque (bowls). From Carnon one can easily reach the beaches to the east of the town that extend towards those of the Petit and Grand Travers. Towards evening, the lights of the fairground draw people towards the big wheel which offers an unequalled view over the surrounding coast and lagoons.
