Racou Plage is an interesting place, a seasonal beach at the southwestern end of the French Mediterranean where miles and miles of sandy beaches meet the Pyrennees. In early May the beach awakes and a few brave souls venture forth. In August there are almost as many people as grains of sand (well not quite but I am sure you understand the temptation for exaggeration). By the second week of October the place is all shut up for the winter. So the season is short. This really doesn't make a lot of sense unless you happen to be a warm blooded person who dons a sweater on the first of September!
