best way to Le Grau du Roi from Nice

Could you please tell me what is best and more comfotable (and budget) way to get to Le Grau? We considered the train - but it goes only with changes and is not cheap at all. What about the bus? Any chance to find non - stop?

No options of non-stop bus or train

If you book the train ahead [if you know your exact dates of travel] you may find a cheaper ticket

Most of the 'trains' at Le Grau du Roi are in fact buses. There are few passengers on this small line, so the SNCF operates buses in place of trains except at the busy months of summer.

Thank you very much. Seems we are going to a desert place where trains do not go. Anyway hope we will enjoy it. Do you know aproximate price for transfer Nice - Le Grau Du Roi? The distance is quite long but there are three of us and it might turn to be not so expensive if devided.....

11 connections per day in summer , with only 5 by bus is pretty good for a small place

Train fare is going to be considerably cheaper than a transfer, even split between 3 people

eg Nice airport to Arles [as far west as i could calculate on one of the transfer sites] was 340 euros one way for 3 people

<<Most of the 'trains' at Le Grau du Roi are in fact buses.>>

There is regular train service form Nimes to Le Grau du Roi. This service is supplemented by a few bus runs from the Nimes train station but this changes according to season.

There is bus service from Montpellier and a bus in summer to Stes. Maries de la Mer but from Nice, you will need to first reach Nimes.

The train station in le Grau du Roi is about a 5 minute walk to the beach and this is the only beach location in this area with any train service at all.
