Port Saint Louis du Rhône - Tourist office

Ideally located at the mouth of the Grand Rhone, between the river and the sea, Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, with its 8,624 inhabitants, is one of the three gateways to the wild Camargue.
This town ''at the end of the world” was not always orientated towards tourism: in fact, born at the beginning of the century around the port activity, it has over the years adapted to economic realities and changed its economic direction.
It now relies on its natural heritage and cultural identity to revitalise its territory, develop it and make every effort to preserve the quality of life.
A TOWN BETWEEN LAND AND SEA
Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône is in the Camargue, located between the Rhône and the Crau. White horses, bulls, flamingos and several hundreds of birds (mallards, coots, egrets, teal...) live there.
In the wilderness of the Camargue, exposed to the winds, Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône affirms its maritime tradition with fishermen and sailors from all backgrounds.
For 19 years, yachting and boating has boomed with quality infrastructure and two blue flags, which can accommodate seafarers from all countries.
The prime location, midway between Italy and Spain, and six floating docks, two dry docks, offers all services: construction, repair, maintenance, supplies, with a capacity of 4,400 boats of all sizes and two fishing ports.
In addition, since 2002 on the coast and including the Napoleon Beach (10 km of fine sand), the development of new board and water sports are assets to improve the town.
Ideal site for water sports and remarkable for the quality of its environment, Mer et Passions water sports centre also offers a wide range of activities such as kite surfing, fun boarding, windsurfing, catamaran...AT THE HEART OF RESOURCES OF THE SEAMany families were already living from fishing when the town was founded in 1904. The tradition of seafaring occupations is deeply rooted in the Saint Louis culture. Anse Carteau is an exceptional site for the cultivation of mussels and shellfish and represents nearly 10% of the national production. The “Carteau mussel'' is a quality, fleshy and tasty shellfish to discover and enjoy.
Between the Camargue and Provence, the town offers a remarkable territory marked by strong characteristics. With the reconquest of the central port and the originality of its urban project, Port Saint Louis creates new attractive area with the wealth of its natural environment; it embarks for sustainable and solidarity development.
Walking affords everyone the ample opportunity to discover the many charms.
