Le Barcarès is a popular resort with a busy market and a fishing port. It has a good number of campsites but l’Europe is a little different in that it is open all year and each pitch has its own private sanitary facilities. There is access from the site to the sandy beach, which is a walk of some 600 m. In high season, the site has an attractive pool complex overlooked by the bar/restaurant and stage where nightly shows are performed. There are 339 good sized, level pitches (100 for touring units) with shade from mixed trees and shrubs.
The fact that the site is open all year round and that Perpignan and Gerona airports are nearby has proved attractive to some visitors looking to buy their own mobile homes. There are 75 mobile homes or chalets to rent and 145 privately owned. A tarmac path, the Voie Verte de l’Agly follows the Agly river, which runs past the site and is 15 km. long from Le Barcarès to Rivesaltes. It is used for cycling, jogging, walking and roller skating (but no cars) and is popular with those who enjoy keeping fit.
