Walks and hikes

Explore the coastline

Make the most of the region’s unspoilt natural environment and outstanding views over the Mediterranean, the rocky coast, inlets and Pyrenean foothills by enjoying one of the many walks that start in Collioure: the chemin des douaniers (customs officers’ trail), the coastal path, etc.

Enjoying the town

Experiencing the rhythm of the town means enjoying traditional markets, wine-tasting at a wine cellar, wandering around the port and soaking up all of Collioure’s characteristic colours and aromas. As night falls, lamps light up the dusky town, making a wander through its paved streets even more appealing.
