Located on the right bank of the River Hérault, La Tamarissière offers peaceful and shady surroundings for visitors. The village gets its name from the tree plantations (mainly tamarisks) created at the end of the 18th century to fight against the silting up of the mouth of the Hérault.
A stroll in the shade of the pine trees

Campers are welcome during the summer, whilst the rest of the year, it is a place for strolling under the majestic pine trees, between the beaches, the reed beds of the Clôt and the protected natural area of the Verdisses. It is a wild place, populated by squirrels, birds and water fowl.
