Zoom on

Mont Saint-Loup, a former volcano

Formed during a volcanic eruption 740,000 years ago, Mont Saint-Loup is now a protected and preserved natural area.

Two buildings stand on the Mount: a semaphore and a crenellated tower called ‘Tour des Anglais’, built in the 18th century. Together with Fort Brescou, they were part of the old lookout system along the coast.

You really should climb the 113 metres to the top, on foot or by bike, because once there, an exceptional 360 ° view of the whole region awaits you!

Our recommendation

The Protected Marine Area of ​​the Agde Coast ‘Posidonies du Cap d’Agde’

This area covers 6000 hectares. The marine site, with its volcanic origins, is home to a great biodiversity, due to its flora and fauna, and Fort Brescou.

It is a fragile heritage, of inestimable value, closely protected and managed by the town of Agde, together with those involved in maritime activities (professional and leisure fishermen, divers, yachtsmen, marinas…). It is also a site conducive to ecotourism which can be approached by the underwater route (free diving from the Plagette), diving in the heart of the Tables underwater site in particular, or during boat trips out to sea, while respecting the rules and specific equipment involved in ecological mooring.
