Rochelongue Plage, the best of the Cap d'Agde beaches, is situated in the heart of Cap d Agde. Rochelongue has been attracting holiday-makers for over 70 years and it is frequently listed in the Top 10 best beaches in Languedoc. The long expanse of sand and cool beach bars make Rochelongue Plage an ideal beach to chill out on during those hot summer days in South France.
Rochelonge plage, is situated on the western side of Cap d'Agde. It is our preferred choice out of the 5 main Cap d'Agde beaches (Plage de la Roquille, Plage de Mole, Plage de Richelieu and Plage de l'Amite) . There is a nice beach side restaurant and bar and you get lovely sweeping views of the whole bay down to Narbonne plage. This fine sandy beach extends out in the direction of le Grau d'Agde. From Rochelongue Plage you have a wonderful view to the Fort de Brescou, a former prison and garrison dating back to before Napoleon's time.

Rochelongue Plage, Cap d'Agde
There are some nice shops and cafes at the rear of Rochelongue beach and you also have the l'infini Beach bar and restaurant actually on the beach. The beach itself is long and flat and kept immaculately clean. The water is quite shallow, so you have to wade out quite a way before you can swim. But this makes it perfect for young children.
So if you want to experience one of the best Languedoc beaches then head for Rochelongue Plage. In the height of the tourist season you will need to arrive early (or after 16.00) to get a parking spot and a good place on the beach.
