All the pleasures of the Mediterranean
It’s the most popular resort on the Languedoc coast. Its history goes back to the 6th Century BC. The Greek sailors who discovered the area called it “Agathé Tyché”: good fortune.
The Agde area, with its vast sandy beaches, is dedicated to the enjoyment of sunshine. With its superb climate, you can enjoy golf, sailing, fishing, tennis, horse riding and many other sports at any time of the year, enjoy your children in the waterpark “Aqualand“, or amusement park, or by playing minigolf, explore the delightful hinterland or the old town of Agde. Don’t miss the “Musée de l’Ephèbe“ and its fabulous collection of Greek and Roman artefacts. At night, Cap d’Agde goes looking for fun : casino, nightclubs, quayside restaurants and bars..
