Le Golfe d'Aigues Mortes est la partie la plus septentrionale du Golfe du Lion. Il comprend les communes de Palavas-les-Flots, Mauguio, La Grande-Motte et le Grau du Roi. Son nom fait directement référence à l'ancien port royal d'Aigues-Mortes d'où Saint Louis (Louis IX) embarqua pour les croisades.

La navigation vous fait longer un littoral de plages où il n'est guère facile de se repérer. Suivez donc attentivement votre navigation sur la carte !
