What to visit in Agde?
The city center looks like a small village. Agde is often referred to as the "black pearl of the Mediterranean", due to the many basalt stone buildings. Don't miss Saint Etienne d'Agde Cathedral, the old ramparts, the house in the heart of the city, the quays of the Hérault, and simply stroll through the streets of the city. You will come across many old buildings, as well as their magnificent and well preserved doors, for a very beautiful stroll!
Cap d'Agde, a seaside resort on the Mediterranean coast, was founded in 1970. Formerly a Greek port of antiquity, the resort now offers about ten districts, each with its own atmosphere, calm or more lively, with Mediterranean colours, oleanders and pines as a constant.
You can easily discover this place on foot or by bike, using pedestrian alleys and cycle paths. In addition to the long, well-developed beaches, you will find several sites dedicated to holidays and relaxation: a very pleasant marina; the famous naturist village; the Aquarium presenting the many riches of marine life; the Ephèbe museum dedicated to underwater archaeology; Aqualand, the first water park in Europe; the Ile des Loisirs where casino, amusement park, disco, restaurants and concert halls are located; an international tennis centre with 24 outdoor courts; an international golf course with 27 holes.
Nature is not forgotten at Cap d'Agde, and you can also take a few walks or excursions, for example with the Petits Trains, which offer two 50-minute tours with comments on ancient history or volcanism, or discover the Bagnas Natural Reserve.
When to go to Agde?
With hot and sunny summers, the reputation of the beautiful summer days in Agde extends beyond the borders of France. Like coastal cities such as Sète, Palavas-les-Flots or Cassis, which benefit from the influence of the Mediterranean, this town also enjoys superb springs and autumns where the beautiful sunshine and mild atmosphere make it possible to prolong the pleasures of summer holidays. Only winters are not very pleasant because of the cold since the minimum temperatures can be close to 6°C.
