"The Cape of Agde" Le Cap d'Agde by tashski

Le Cap d'Agde Travel Guide: 35 reviews and 95 photos

Le Cap D'Agde has been, for many years, a favourite holiday haunt of the French, however, those outside France may not be familiar with it.
Le Cap D'Agde, in the Languedoc Roussillon area of Southern France, is situated next to the town of Agde, and the fishing port of Grau D'Agde, which is where the Herault river and the Canal Du Midi join the Mediterrean Sea.

There is plenty to do in and around Agde as the Langudoc Roussillon region offers great diversity: pine forests, lakes, ports, vineyards, sea and rivers.

Agde is one of the oldest towns in France and its' narrow streets are really charming offering lots of shopping opportunities in small boutiques situated in them.

Grau D'Agde is a typical Mediterrean fishing village where everything is centred around the fishing, and the broad beach right by the jetty.

Le Cap D'Agde is a purpose built resort, based around manmade harbour port/marina. The resort boast three ports, with a combination of over 3000 boat berths. Traditional yacht sailing, deep sea diving, and other water pursuits are extremely popular.
There are a large number of restaurants along with bars and shops situated all along the harbour, with great views of the marina itself. This part of Le Cap D'Agde really comes alive at night with many of the restaurants offering live music.

*PLEASE NOTE* Le Cap D'Agde is particularly famous as home to the largest nudist colony in Europe. This is a very large complex with shops, beach, restaurant, bank, etc., however, it is only part of Cap D'Agde. I have never visited this part nor have any desire to do so, therefore, I am unable to answer any naturist queries someone who wishes to visit may have.

  • Pros:Beaches, marina, restaurants, museums, fishing, diving, vine yards and much much more
