10 reasons to choose Cap d'Agde
For beaches where the sun shines 300 days of the year
From the beach by the La Tamarissière pine forest to the naturist village beach and those at Grau d'Agde and Cap d'Agde, 14 km of white sandy beaches – and a volcanic cove at the foot of the cliffs of la Grande Conque – stretch out with 10 supervised beaches inviting you to take it easy with family or friends.
Quality, safety, comfort and leisure: everything is in place for everyone to enjoy a relaxing break by the sea, in their own way and at their own pace.
To experience centuries of history
Discover the ambience and charm of the medieval back streets of the town of Agde, the private mansions, the churches, the quaysides and the treasures in the museums, in particular the Ephèbe statue which symbolises Agde’s Greek origins, and the history of Fort Brescou.
To enjoy a breath of fresh air amongst spectacular unspoilt nature
Take advantage of your stay to discover the variety and the beauty of the scenery: the Canal du Midi, the volcano by the sea covered in pine forests, the Bagnas Nature Nature Reserve, a major centre for the protection of birds, the banks of the River Hérault and of course the volcanic coastline of Cap d’Agde, with its undersea fauna and flora.
For lifestyle and gastronomy
Indulge without moderation in the joys of Mediterranean cuisine: the fish and seafood with their tang of the sea harmonise wonderfully with sun-soaked vegetables enhanced by a few garrigue herbs. Enjoy the whole accompanied by a nicely chilled local wine, on your terrace or that of the restaurant where you have been drawn by the ambience and conviviality: a group of musicians on a private beach, a neighbourhood dance, a little market, or street entertainment…
For the wide range of activities for all ages
For the infinite supply of well-being which water offers
On the water, in the water, under the water, with water, any time is a good time to enjoy its benefits.
Trust in the water sports professionals and discover the pleasures of water sports in all forms. A perfect way to relax, eliminate stress, have fun and practise an activity which involves the whole family, so take advantage of your stay to take part in one of many water sports or, simply go for a trip out to sea and admire the last rays of a beautiful sunset.
You can also enjoy the feeling of relaxation and completeness offered by balneotherapy treatments after an active day.

Receptions, shows, the casino, the cinema and theme parks… Bars and restaurants shine out far into the night from ports and beaches. Then, a clubbing ambience takes over and DJs bring the dance floors alive in discotheques, clubs and after show venues.
