The Côte Vermeille (French pronunciation: [kot vɛʁmɛj]; Catalan: Costa Vermella, meaning "vermilion coast", or traditionally Catalan: la Marenda) is a region in the French department of Pyrénées-Orientales on the Mediterranean Coast near the border with Spain.[1] The Côte Vermeille stretches from Argelès-sur-Mer to the border village of Cerbère. The towns of Collioure, Port-Vendres and Banyuls-sur-Mer are nested along a 20 km stretch of beaches, small bays, creeks and coves.
