Why not take advantage of your stay to try out diving or go exploring with the diving clubs who will take you to the heart of the most beautiful underwater sites, to discover the magic of the rocky Mediterranean seabed.
The extraordinary biodiversity of the “Grandes Tables” dive site
The "Grandes Tables” dive site is located to the south of Grande Conque beach. This exceptional site takes its name from the layout of the ancient Mont Saint-Loup volcanic lava flows, thousands of years ago.
These basalt plateaux abound with a wide diversity of wildlife and plants, in particular a great variety and abundance of Mediterranean fish species, making this a site to be seen. The layout of the site attracts divers of all levels, who can admire the contrast between the dark volcanic rock and the colourful life that lives there.
A wide variety of supervised diving excursions for adults and children…
Come and discover the astonishing riches of the Mediterranean seabed, either on your own or guided by a professional diver. Clubs and diving schools can accompany you during your excursions, whatever your level from beginner to expert diver. You will find a variety of different diving options - introduction (from beach or boat), training sessions for all levels, exploration, underwater outings…
…and a discovery trail accessible from the beach
A few metres from the Plagette, in the heart of the Natura 2000 site, the underwater trail “Posidonies du Cap d’Agde”, set out over a distance of around 200m, can be visited with flippers, mask and snorkel. Ideal to learn about the underwater universe, the trail immerses you in the underwater ecosystem, for a unique experience.
One of the features of the trail is that you can observe species at a depth of 5 metres, which you wouldn't see at 20 metres.
Discover sea life without flippers or snorkel
If you don’t want to get wet, you can still discover sea life with a fun visit to the Aquarium. With underwater habitats and colourful fish, young and old will have a great time!
