Port du Cap d’Agde is located on the Golf of the Lion Coast (Mediterranean France), in the municipality of Cap d'Adge, in the department of Hérault.
It's the main harbour of Cap d'Adge. The other harbour is Port Ambonne, with 300 mooring places.
Port du Cap d'Adge is one of the largest marinas in France and Europa. It's made up of 10 docks in a 35-hectare-area.
Mooring places are almost 3100 in total, for boats with a maximum length of 27 metres and a draught within 3 metres.
Some special areas are reserved for multihull vessels.
The entrance of the harbour is just in front of Fort de Brescou island, which can make it very crowded, especially in summer.
Anchorage is forbidden in the whole harbour area and in front of it.
The harbour is well-sheltered from winds but south-western winds can make difficult the entrance into the harbour channel. The marina offers drinkable water and electric charging columns.
Toilets and showers are located in different points of the structure. Piers are protected through an electronic safety system. At night, the harbour is also under surveillance.
The harbour is also equipped with a waste collection area.
The Port Authority produces weather bulletins every day.
The yard has two travelifts, respectively with a maximum range of 50 and 16 tons, two wet docks, a towing basin, a multihull boats trailer, two mobile cranes with a maximum range og 2 tons and two maintenance areas.
The yachting club of Cap d'Adge organises sailing and boating courses, while some local associations organise races, fishing competions, scuba diving excursions and jet-ski trips.
