The Camargue is a rural coastline region on the south east coast of France. It is located to the south of Arles and between the two arms of the Rhone delta. The eastern arm of the delta is called the Grande Rhone while the western arm is called the Petite Rhone. Administratively the area lies within the department of Bouches-du-Rhone, or Mouth of the Rhone, and includes Arles, the largest commune in Metropolitan France, Saintes-Marie-de-la-Mer, the second biggest commune, and Port Saint-Louis-du-Rhone.
The area is made up of reed-covered marshland and brine lagoons, known as etangs. These lagoons are cut off from the sea by sand bars. At 930 km squared, the Camargue is western Europe’s second biggest river delta. The area is home to hundreds of species of birds. Perhaps most famously, the marshes are home to the Greater Flamingo. The Camargue is also famous for Camargue Bull and the Camargue Horse.
