Port de Sainte Marie La Mer is located on the Gulf of Lion Coast, in Mediterranean France. It's part of the Eastern Pyrenees region, 1.0 miles distant from the harbour of Canet-en- Roussillon.
It hosts 473 mooring places for boats with a maximum length of 22 metres. Mooring is possible at fixed and floating piers. Draught varies from 2.50 m to 50 cm but the minimum draught is 1.50 m because this is the depth reached at the entrance of the area.
The entrance is signaled by some rows of yellow buoys.
The harbour and its services are available only for customers provided with specific badges.
The harbour is rather sheltered from winds but eastern winds can provoke a draught reduction.
The marina offers drinkable water, electricity, toilets, showers, clothes and crockery boxes.
In July and August, the Port Authority produces weather reports every day.
The harbour is under surveillance all the year; in summer, the service is from 12h00 to night, while in winter it works only at night.
The maintenance area hosts a closed and safe garaging zone which can host up to 150 boats, under surveillance and with water and electricity supply.
The customers can also enjoy a travelift with a maximum load of 15 tons.
