Seahorses and shellfish fascinate in France's Thau Lagoon

Ever since Roman times, one strip of sand has separated the Mediterranean Sea from France's Thau Lagoon. Spanning over 7,500 hectares, it’s the largest body of water in the country's southern Languedoc-Roussillon region. Mussels and oysters are harvested in the saltwater, while its unique colonies of seahorses are an enduring source of fascination for divers and scientific researchers alike. For locals, meanwhile, the lagoon is a perfect place to go sailing. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover it.
