To suit all tastes

Let yourself go and take part in the different activities on offer. The sporty types will find beach volley, beach soccer, sand-ball or soccer tennis; water sports enthusiasts will take to the water; whilst children will have fun with activities organised all summer. And if you prefer to spend the day basking in the sun, all you need to do is spread out your towel and put on your sunglasses. Comfortable, equipped beaches offer all the services you want for a relaxing day, with your feet in the water.
Adge is extremely committed to preserving its coasts and fight against pollution. The European Blue Flag flies over 10 Agde beaches, and guarantees high quality water for swimmers. Regular checks of water quality, projects to protect the marine environment and dunes and frequent beach cleaning are just some of the actions undertaken to preserve this natural heritage.
Relax in safety on the beaches
For your safety, beach zones are monitored each day by teams of rescuers, ready to help in case of accidents.
A flag on the first aid centres indicates their presence, and buoys signal the monitored swimming areas.
For your safety:
- do not enter the water suddenly after a long time in the sun,
- watch children when they are swimming, and explain how to find their way back to you with visual indicators,
- protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen,
- observe and respect the flags.
