Port-La Nouvelle

Port-La Nouvelle is a village on the Mediterranean coast, 30 kilometres south of Narbonne. As its name suggests, it is a newish municipality that has developed around the port and trade. Port-La Nouvelle is also a family seaside resort offering the typical seaside activities: swimming and sunbathing, games on the beach, lunch on the terrace of a restaurant. The Canal de la Robine flows into the sea through Port-La Nouvelle and as the icing on the cake, the town can pride itself on being home to one of the most beautiful natural jewels of the Côte du Midi.

OT Côte du Midi

Once upon a time, there was a small ship

Port-La Nouvelle is a huge sandy beach stretching for nearly 10 km, against the backdrop of the Leucate cliffs and the Corbières vineyards. Any time of year is a great time for strolling along the waterfront and admiring the comings and goings of pleasure boats, fishermen and international cargo ships. Port-La Nouvelle is the third largest port in the French Mediterranean (for trade)!

Three unmissable (very cool) experiences

A walk on the huge beach

From the mouth of the harbour to the cliffs of Leucate, the beach stretches almost non-stop... you will enjoy going from a very busy seafront to a wild, quiet beach.

Stroll in front of large and small boats

The other side of Port-La Nouvelle is its port, frequented by pleasure boats and large international merchant ships.

Zen on the banks of the Canal de la Robine

Bordered by umbrella pines, we suggest you walk along the Robine at the end of the day when the weather is fine... the atmosphere is quiet and laid back.

Restaurants and fresh fish

Port-La Nouvelle is the place to go for fresh fish. That’s no surprise, since it has a fish auction and fresh fish are sold from the back of the boats every day! Many chefs in the town cook up dishes made with fresh fish... why not give it a try?

IN THE NEARBY VILLAGES

All the flavours of the Côte du Midi are concentrated in this little piece of paradise: salt, fresh fish, oysters, organic wines, craft beers...

A JEWEL OF NATURE CALLED

"La Réserve naturelle régionale de Sainte Lucie"

In the heart of the lagoons, the Sainte Lucie Regional Nature Reserve is a delightful place with diverse landscapes to enjoy: forests, lagoons, salt pans, an old quarry of shell limestone... in a very small space. The site is owned by the Conservatoire du Littoral and managed by the Narbonnaise Regional Nature Park. Walk the trail and visit the peninsula with your family. You can also stay a little longer and take a walk through the old salt marshes. Rent a bike in Port-La Nouvelle or book a guided tour by mountain bike or VAE with Languedoc VTT Evasion. Jump on board Le Cathare and sail through the Reserve along the Canal de la Robine.
