Agay, one of the most beautiful harbours on the French Riviera
Agay, located in one of the most beautiful harbours on the coast between Cap Dramont and Pointe de la Baumette, is the natural way in to the Esterel. It offers three fine sandy beaches and a terrace area with access to the sea from the rocks. Very protected, it was appreciated by sailors (Agay means "favourable" in Greek).

French writer, poet, aviator and reporter
Agay is a paradise where even the dust is perfumed...
A little history....
With the arrival of the railway in 1860, many artists stopped over in Agay: the painter Louis Valtat, the composer Vincent d'Indy, the writers Guy de Maupassant and Maurice Donnay stayed there as well as Saint-Exupéry (do not miss the Fountain for the Little Prince, made to in his honour). Albert Cohen located part of Belle du Seigneur's action there.
Well protected between Cap Dramont and Pointe de la Baumette, the Agay harbour is a natural entry point to the Esterel massif. Its configuration makes it a very popular place for sailors (Agay also means "favourable" in Greek). You will enjoy its three fine sandy beaches, the summit of Rastel and its red rocks, overlooking the harbour and offering a breathtaking panorama.

The port of Agay
Located in the heart of the bay of Agay, the Port of Agay benefits from an exceptional setting.
Its pointed quay, an ever-flowering garden and the red rocks along the Rade River delight artists, summer visitors and children alike.
The stories of the former "Agathoniens" do not fail to remind us that time has stopped here.
With a capacity of 200 berth from 0 to 8m, the Port of Agay welcomes you from April to October.
