Lake of Thau

Oyster beds of the Hérault

This lake, the biggest one of the Languedoc-Roussillon, is known for its oysters and shellfish. You can see the oyster beds from the edge of the lake. They stretch over a 7500 ha site between Bouzigues, Mèze and Marseillan. In Bouzigues, you’ll find a museum dedicated to the oyster of Bouzigues, and various oyster farmers open their doors to taste this delicious mollusc.
