Camargue Nature Park - Review
Situated along the shorelines of Camargue, the Parc Naturel Régional de Camargue is one of the most protected areas covering 820 sq.kms. Designated in 1970, it is located on the Mediterranean, in the Rhone delta, mainly between the two branches of the river and stretches over Arles, Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône and the town of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Green, beautiful and a home to over 120 species of birds, the Nature Park is a good starting point for reconnecting with nature.
The scenic beauty of Carmague Nature Park is unsurpassed and the exquisite shoreline is bound to take your breath away. The viewing stands at the park let you catch glimpses of the most beautiful birds with lovely flamingos being the most common. You will find the following at the nature park
- A ranch where friendly Gardians, pretty much like cowboys, will tell you all about the Carmague cattle and show you their prized bulls along with a manade of Carmague horses.
- A roadside museum is situated at the old barnhouse Rousty Bridge of Carmague which gives a background the flora and fauna in a very fun and interactive way. The museum stresses upon exhibiting the relationship of man with nature specific to the delta.
- A territorial observatory with an aim to monitor the ecological, economic and social evolution of the territory in time.
The Camargue National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Camargue Nature Park, Arles Reviews
Great environment but limited acces which is good for the conservation. Park somewhere and take a hike or bike to get deeper in the park and see the real beauty of it...
Really special place. Seeing pink flamingos and wild horses, followed by a smaller little slice of Med with lots of life and great sandy beaches - A gem of a place, wish we’d had more time..!!
Nice natural park with long history. A good walk. Unfortunately we haven't seen any horse or bull.
Front promotional videos I have seen I was expecting a haven of wildlife including wild horses roaming around. There is very little infrastructure for tourism, no parking places, no picnic areas. I saw a lot of tourists driving around not knowing what to do. On a five month trip cycling around France, I would say the Camargue has been the biggest disappointment.
A beautiful place to discover nature. Beaches, fields, saltlands, horses, torros. Filled with quaint Mas hotels and colorful French people.
