Canal trip down to Port La Nouvelle

We are barging on the Canal du Midi and were planning to end up in Narbonne and saw that we could, on our hired boat, go down to Port La Nouvelle but would like to know if it is worth the trip!

While I have been to Port la Nouvelle, I have not taken the canal that far. Generally, the Canal de la Robine is not particularly interesting, at not as interesting as the Canal du Midi.

I took a tour on one of the barges (La Tramontane) and enjoyed it very much especially Ile Sainte Lucie, just before Port La Nouvelle (natural site).

As I haven't been on Canal du Midi I can't compare the two but I would not hesitate to do it again

Many thanks to all who commented it is much appreciated. As we have a spare day it looks like we will take a trip down to Port La Nouvelle as it is not very far from Narbonne!
