Port Gardian, Camarguaise stopover! A glimpse of the bell tower of the Saintes Maries de la Mer church is a joy for all sailors. The only relief after hours of coast hardly higher than a small swell, is the remarkable bitterness which announces pleasant days in a bright and cheerful city, a calm night sheltered from the hubbub of the big summer cities. Port Gardian is the only Camargue stopover, surrounded by nature, for a complete change of scenery, a sort of break between Provence to the east and Languedoc to the west.

    Pleasant stopover on September 2, 2020. Two important points: you risk having to moor between 2 stakes (Duke of Alba) and in a sustained crosswind, you will need outside help, while necessarily relying on the leeward post .... with nice traces on your white hull. don't come solo. Second point, the invoice for the place is made using the length of their file (with what references and it's not official. Commercial length?): Coming from Greece, Spain, Italy, Tunisia and east of Ste Marie, it is the first port to do so. !! It's a good way to increase the prices! Finally, the moorings at the entrance to the port seem little protected from storms coming from the west or southwest, If you arrive outside opening hours or in a strong wind from the southwest or west, please not to put yourself alongside the reception pontoon. Note: I passed on September 26, 2020. There were more than 40 knots from North-West. I confirm that the visitors' places are not really sheltered.

    Escale agréable le 2 septembre 2020. Deux points importants: vous risquez de devoir vous amarrer entre 2 pieux (Duc d’Albe) et dans un vent de travers soutenu, vous aurez besoin d'une aide extérieure, tout en vous appuyant forcément sur le poteau sous le vent .... avec de belles traces sur votre coque blanche. ne venez pas en solo. Deuxième point, la facture du lieu se fait à l'aide de la longueur de leur dossier (avec quelles références et ce n’est pas officiel. longueur commerciale?): Venant de Grèce, d'Espagne, d'Italie, de Tunisie et de l'est de Ste Marie, c'est le premier port qui le fait. !! C'est un bon moyen d'augmenter les prix! Enfin, les amarrages à l’entrée du port ne semblent que peu protégés des tempêtes venant de l'ouest ou du sud-ouest, Si vous arrivez hors des horaires d’ouverture ou par vent fort du Sud-Ouest ou Ouest n’hésitez pas à vous mettre à couple du ponton d’accueil. Nb: je suis passé le 26 septembre 2020. Il y avait plus de 40 noeuds de North-West. Je confirme que les places visiteurs ne sont pas vraiment abritées.

    Hello sir, Thank you for choosing Port Gardian to make a stopover in the Mediterranean on the French coast. We would first like to inform you that many marinas in our region have piers for mooring, more commonly called piles or duc-d'Albe, which are generally appreciated by mariners. We remind you that we take into account as a criterion for choosing the tariff category the overall length of the boat while on your documents only the waterline length is indicated and after information taken from the builder, Bénéteau shipyards have never built a sailboat model Océanis 43 lower, in overall length, less than 13.00. We would also like to understand how you can say that our port is not protected from storms when you have spent a night where the wind speed has not exceeded 10 knots. We wish you good navigation and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to Saintes-Maries-de-la-mer again

    On the itinerary of our cruise that took us from Sainte Marie la Mer (66) to Cassis, we made a stopover on the way there and on the way back because everything is perfect there. Impeccable welcome, we come to help you position yourself, if necessary to moor, in short, we highly recommend !!!

    Sur l’itinéraire de notre croisière qui nous a mené de Sainte Marie la Mer (66) à Cassis, nous avons fait escale à l’aller comme au retour car tout y est parfait. Accueil irréprochable, on vient vous aider à vous placer, si nécessaire à vous amarrer, bref, pus recommandons vivement!!!
