A young, dynamic seaside resort
Le Cap d’Agde was created during the 1960s, due to a governmental decision to develop tourism along the Languedoc-Roussillon Mediterranean coast. Under this plan, immense beaches of blond agate sand were arranged harmoniously around facilities in accordance with the architectural codes and the typical colours of the Languedoc villages. It was the construction of the marina that really helped create the Le Cap d’Agde of today. Aqualand, the Ephèbe Museum, the Aquarium, the International Golf Course, the International Tennis Centre, the Ile des Loisirs leisure island, the naturist village, there’s a wide range of facilities on offer!
A closer look at the “20th century heritage destination”label
This label, which distinguishes the major achievements that emerged between 1900 and 1975, has been awarded to Le Cap d’Agde for its architectural qualities, particularly for the ‘Port Saint-Martin’, a key site in the development of the resort created by the ‘Roots Mission’ from 1970.
Classified as a Natura 2000 site, the Cap d’Agde coastline is a paradise for green tourism. Discover these protected natural areas on land and at sea: the Hérault river, the seasonal ponds of Notre-Dame, the Bagnas lakes (a National Nature Reserve) and, the largest, the protected marine area of the Agde Coast ‘Posidonies du Cap d’Agde’.
