1. Re: Port carmargue or cap d' agde

Both places are busy in summer. I only know Cap d'Agde as an overnight mooring, but know Porte Camargue quite well (I'll be sailing a boat moored in front of Ulysee on Friday morning).

Ulysee is great for beaches, but remote from the main shopping area. There are a couple of restaurants, a hotel and a grocery nearby. It is on the far side of the marina (away from the centre, road access, bus, etc)

There is a small summer ferry about half a km away that takes you across the mouth of the marina to the Capitainerie which is closer to the shops.

You really need a car (or boat) to get around Porte Camargue. One of the biggest and best beaches in Languedoc, L'Espiguette is nearby. Maybe rent a bike ?

Thanks.

Being close to the beach is important for us

There is direct access to the dunes and beach and I spotted a few more beach type shops nearby that I had forgotten about.

They have a pool and some gardens.
