Port Leucate

When you arrive in Port Leucate from the motorway and cross the Corrège bridge, what a view of the resort! Built just over 50 years ago in 1968, on a strip of sand between the sea and the lake, Port Leucate remains an el dorado for family holidays!

Here everything is done to make your holiday easier ! Local shops, supermarkets, petrol stations, restaurants and lively terraces are never far away!

Port Leucate, a whole history!

Port Leucate is a seaside resort which was created in the 1960s, more precisely in 1968.
The resort was created within the framework of the Mission Racine which aimed to develop tourism on the Languedoc coast.

This state mission, led by Sir Charles de Gaulle and his Prime Minister Georges Pompidou, had nearly 200km of fine sand laid out on the Mediterranean coast.

For this mission, Pierre Racine worked with several architects, including Georges Candilis, who designed the architecture of the Carrats de Port Leucate, notably inspired by Greece.

The most important work that results from this work, this understanding, this perseverance, is the creation of favourable conditions for people to meet, to know each other better. And knowledge leading to friendship strengthens peace between peoples.

The Seafront

Port Leucate is first and foremost a pedestrian seafront facing the Mediterranean. By bike, skateboard or simply on foot, you can walk with your family in complete safety in an idyllic setting.

You will discover Les Rizières (aquatic area, lawns facing the sea), Le Ponton overlooking the sea, Le Miroir d’Eau and its perspective on the Mediterranean, Le Kyklos, a Barcelona-inspired stroll, an original setting that will accompany you before going swimming.

In the evening, meals in front of the sea, on the quays or on the beach directly in the beach clubs: tapas, typical dishes, fried mussels… There is something for everyone.

In summer for the Nuits Blanches, we dress in white for a musical barbecue !

Les Plages

Find beaches of fine sand as far as the eye can see!
Turquoise waters, large expanses, come and enjoy this heavenly setting all year round!

A family resort, Port Leucate welcomes you, young and old, for a unique stay. Everything is at your disposal for a peaceful holiday.

Find activities for the whole family; boat trip with Leucate Evasion Marine  or with  Le Voilier Limnoreia , boat rental without licence, canoe, paddle and pedal boat in l’Ile aux Loisirs, bike rental at Roues Libres et Sports…

Want to relax by the water? Don’t panic, our beaches are supervised but also marked with totems to prevent them from getting lost (octopus, starfish, crab, turtle…)

On arrival, head to the first aid post to pick up a bracelet corresponding to the nearest totem pole, which your child can show to the rescuers if he or she gets lost and thus facilitate the search.

For the summer season, find all the activities and entertainment for families and children: Cap jeux on the Eric Tabarly quay, but also sports on the beach with beach volleyball and gym!

The Harbour

The quays of Port Leucate offer you all the entertainment for your holidays. Between the tours, the games set up and the entertainment offered by the town, you will never be bored! Stroll along the shops set up during the day or take advantage of the night markets to bring back a souvenir of your holiday.
How about an ice cream or churros in front of the boats? Admire the sailboats, yachts and catamarans parked along the wharves to the sound of Port Leucate’s nightlife.

Your evening will probably end at the Casino or Parc d’attraction to admire the fireworks in front of the sea!

Boaters, look no further, the Port of Leucate is for you! With 1400 moorings on a sandy lagoon between the sea and the pond, this is one of the largest marinas in Europe in the Mediterranean ! You will also find all the services you need. Do not hesitate to contact the Harbour Master’s Office !

afoot or by bike

Afoot or by bike, discover Leucate differently!
The cycle path crosses the commune and allows you to get around Port Leucate but also to reach Leucate Plage and Leucate Village.
Stroll along the quays or along the seafront on the pedestrian walkways and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea.

The Pond

The pond, between traditional fishing and outdoor activities.

Close to the oyster beds and facing the Canigou, the pond of Leucate is open to you! Come and enjoy a pedal boat session in l’île aux loisirs, unless you prefer to discover sailing at the Cercle de Voile du Cap Leucate.

A little further down, you will find an exceptional spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing in optimal wind conditions.

Food lovers will not be left out as our traditional fishermen are at work every day to offer you the best fish of the pond, to be found in your plates!
