Port-Vendres is a deepwater port where the Pyrenees come down to the Mediteranean, about 10 miles from the Spanish border. The aire is signposted from the main road from Perpignan (N114). Follow signs to aire and ferry. The aire is just across the road from the sea/beach and a short 10 minute walk around the harbour into the town. The Port is active all year round (commercial and fishing) with a regular stream of cargo boats unloading from African countries.

Cost per 24hrs:

There is a very good fishermen’s co-op fishmarket on the other side of the harbour from the aire. Plenty of restaurants. There is another aire near the station, but the borne never seems to be working. Colllure, Banyul, Pyrenees are within driving distance.  There is a good walk from the Aire up over the cliffs towards the lighthouse and military camp with great views of the Spanish coastline on a clear day.
