Rent a boat in the Camargue

Canal du Rhône à Sète, le Lez, Etang de Thau, Canal du Midi, Petit Rhône

From Cap d’Agde to the Camargue, only a thin strip of white sand separates the Mediterranean Sea from the canals and lagoons that you cruise through with your canal boat. From Lattes, just outside Montpellier, enjoy the bathing at Palavas les Flots. At the edge of the sand and the sea stands the Cathedral of Maguelonne, while in the seaport of Sète canals crisscross the picturesque old town. On the Etang de Thau you follow the channel through the middle of oyster beds to arrive at Agde, originally founded by the ancient Greeks.

From Lattes you can cruise instead along the Canal du Rhône à Sète: proudly rising above the lagoons and salt flats of the Midi is the fortified town of Aigues Mortes, founded in 1240 by St Louis.

In the “Petite Camargue” you can visit the typical fishing village of Le Grau du Roi, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, the splendid abbey church of St-Gilles and Beaucaire with its great keep looking down on a maze of medieval alleys.
