Le Grau d’Agde, a village with a maritime charm
Le Grau d’Agde is a former fishing village at the mouth of the Hérault, this dolce vita Héraultaise became a seaside resort in the 1950s, far from the great “Cap d’Agde” and yet so close, it is widely preferred by families and pensioners.
You want to enjoy the calm, the sun and the beach, the small seaside resort of Grau d’Agde is made for you!
Between tradition and modernity, this family resort has found its balance, it offers a colourful and authentic atmosphere, with its typical customs and activities such as the fishermen’s festival or the sea festival… and its quality tourist facilities: beaches, markets, small shops, restaurants with a terrace on pilotie which give an unobstructed view of the Hérault flowing into the sea.
Let yourself be tempted by a walk to the lighthouse along the shore to observe the boats and the beauty of a sunset, you will certainly be seduced!
Good to know !
A “smugglers” nautical service also allows you to reach La Tamarissière from Le Grau d’Agde on the other side and vice versa.
