Paulilles Bay is one of the most attractive places of the rocky coast in the Pyrénées-Orientales


Paulilles Bay is one of the most attractive places of the Rocky Coast in the Pyrénées-Orientales. The rocky coast runs from Collioure to Cerbère.
It is also called Côte Vermeille due to the red colours of the light on the shore.
Vineyards are all around.

In 1870, a dynamite factory Nobel PRB was built. It produced later in the century nitroglycerin and rubber products until 1984 when the factory stopped all activity. The workers used to live on the site.

In 1998 the Conservatoire du Littoral bought the location and it become a natural site with a cultural and tourist vocation.

The natural site of Paulilles houses now exhibitions in the main pavilion, a botanical garden, the remains of the dynamite factory and the beaches of Port Vendre. There is also a repair shop for Catalan boats.

You can stroll around the vast estate through the large avenues, climb the observation trail, stroke the donkeys, take a dip or laze on the beach and of course enjoy the cafeteria or the restaurants nearby (Le Clos de Paulilles, or the Solo Mio).

The beaches are Pavillon Bleu, label of environmental quality.

A nice stroll starts from the beach of le Solo Mio to Port Vendre harbour or Collioure if you are courageous.

From Collioure, cross Port Vendre and follow the direction of Banuyls and Cerbère. You will pass under a bridge and then on your right you will have parking and on you left the restaurant Le Clos de Paulilles and a little further after a roundabout a further parking. 5 minutes to 10 minutes walk to the site.
