Sailing in the Languedoc Region

We list no less than 18 marinas here, and they are only the ones able to handle cruising yachts from 9 to 18 metres.

This is not an area of great natural beauty. The coast is flat and generally featureless with endless sandy beaches and artificial resort towns of varying degrees of beauty.

The most attractive are those near the Spanish border, Sète, and La Grande Motte.

No marina along this coast is a place of beauty and none are much liked by visitors. This is no exception.

About the only attractive town along this coast. The port is also much liked and is reasonably priced. Very full in High Season. Noise from cruise liners is an issue - if one is in port.

Although the architecture is not to everyone's taste, it has aged wonderfully well, and the marina is an agreeable place all year round with a strong sense of community. The main drawback - true of all ports west of Marseille - is where do you go when you leave? The Gulf of Lions across the mouth of the Rhone can be a fearsome place. The alternative is the Costa Brava, the Balearics, or France east of Marseille.

To many cruising yachtsman, a marina of this size is a complete nightmare. This is however clearly very well run and is widely praised by visitors. Clearly the best option in the area.
