The Cap d'Agde is the seaside resort for the town of Agde on the Mediterranen Sea. It wasn't developed until the 1970s. It is now more famous for its large nudist resort than anything else, but there are many more beaches around.

Fort Brescou was built in the 16th century on a volcanic island but it later became better known as a prison during the 18th and 19th centuries.
