Agde, a sea and canal-orientated town

Agde has been a port city ever since its foun­da­tion way back in the 6th cen­tu­ry. Per­pet­u­ate this tra­di­tion by choos­ing our Agde base to board your licence-free rental boat on the waters of the Canal du Midi. We’ve cho­sen to set up one of our water­way bases here. Your water­way cruise from Agde will guar­an­tee you the chance to real­ly get away from it all, so get ready and choose your rental boat from among our var­i­ous ranges.

Embark on your licence-free boat to discover Agde and its treasures

Before board­ing, or while your cap­tain is learn­ing to steer your rental boat, you can begin your hol­i­day by strolling through this town that, over the years, has become one of the most impor­tant mari­nas on the Mediter­ranean Sea. As you walk around, you’ll bet­ter appre­ci­ate why the town of Agde is nick­named the “Black Pearl of the Mediter­ranean”. the basaltic stone explains this dark colour that char­ac­teris­es the city, even though you’ll also see Agde as a good exam­ple of a typ­i­cal Provençal town. Saint-Eti­enne cathe­dral will be one of the essen­tial sites to take in dur­ing your vis­it. Admire Brescou fort off the mari­na and, before head­ing to our nau­ti­cal base, don’t resist the plea­sure of mar­vel­ling at Saint-Joseph Bridge.
