Grand Travers Montpellier - Best spot on French Riviera for Gay Families with kids


While you’re here at Grand Travers, you will notice that there are tons of families with children running around, playing in the sand, and creating lovely childhood memories. This destination is perfect for children with a playful vibe and peaceful environment. In my experience, Grand Travers in France is one of the best recommendations I can give for all the gay dads. Not only does it have a portion that caters, specifically, to gay guys, but on both sides of the beach you will see plenty of kids laughing under the warm sun.

The crystal-clear waters of Grand Travers has the perfect temperature for your kids to swim in and I’ve witnessed tons of dads teaching their boys and girls how to swim. It, truly, was a wonderful sight to behold. The white and gold sand of these luscious beaches is incredibly comfortable for dads and children, making it a “must-go-to” place in the spring.

The Grand Travers Beach is really easy to access with a simple bus ride or a taxi from Montpellier. You can find more information about this below in the Transport section of the article. Since it is pretty close to many things in Montpellier, this will give your kids ample time to enjoy the satisfying vibes of the beach.

If you have any questions, please contact me and I’d be more than happy to help you.

I hope you have a blast!



Grand Travers is a lovely, gay beach that is the ultimate destination for gay dads. It is in close proximity to Montpellier, a city which has various options for accommodations. If you’re on a budget, you can find what you’re looking for, or if you want to pamper yourselves and your kids during your gay holidays, Montpellier also has tons of luxurious hotels.

As far as I know, there are no gay hotels that cater to only men, though don’t get discourage. Montpellier is the epicenter of gay life and has tons of gay-friendly accommodations that will make your gay holidays comfortable for you and your kids.

During my travels, I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and, I have to say, that it was amazingly satisfying. With a double bed and a sofa, it is the perfect choice for a family. It even has a bus stop close to the hotel so you can access the route to the beach. Even though it’s not in a central area, it is easy to head out to the center of the city or the beach.

The center of the city is lined with towering palm trees, an abundance of restaurants and terraces, and bars to enjoy the local cuisine and an assortment of drinks.

The Odysseum District has a lovely park where your kids have the space to run around and entertain themselves. It is surrounded by Mother Nature’s glorious talents so you could watch them create childhood memories. There are some great options in the area for food as well in case your little bundles of joy get hungry.

When it comes to holidays for gay dads and your kids, I understand how important it is to perfectly plan the trip so that they can be as comfortable as possible.

There are tons of places in the city with great options for accommodations. It will depend on where you stay, but this gay beach is easily accessed from the Odysseum, Place de France Tram Station.
