The beach at Les Metailles, Gruissan - after a storm on the Mediterranean

In deepest Summer this beach can be chocker with sunbather's cars, as its one of the few places where one can drive onto the beach. In the off months the beach is left to return to its natural state. No longer groomed, and cleaned on a daily basis as in Summer, its left to become dunes, and inland lakes. Come to Gruissan in the winter, and bring out the wild side!
