Port of Canet-en-Roussillon
The port of Canet-en-Rousillon, also known as Port de Canet, is located in the coastal village of the same name in southern France. The port of Canet-en-Roussillon is a well-established and popular port on a beautiful stretch of coastline, with 9 km of beaches on either side and many water sports available.
The location of this marina is part of the Languedoc-Roussillon region and is also identified as Caner de Rossello in Catalan. This seaside resort attracts a large number of visitors every year thanks to its beautiful beaches and rich cultural heritage.
In July and August, a water cab operates in the port, making it even easier to get around.
Tourists can visit old buildings and monuments such as the national church of Saint-Jacques, the castle of Esparrou, etc. Nature lovers will be delighted by the natural heritage that constitutes Canet-Saint-Nazaire. Jet-skiing is a very popular activity for tourists who want to experience amazing sensations on the Mediterranean coast.
Many natural landscapes can be admired here, at the foot of the mountains, and visitors who stay at one of the inns in the area, such as the Grand Hotel les Flamants Roses, will enjoy every moment of their stay.
A few miles from the creeks, the Port of Canet en Roussillon offers, on 25ha of water, 1300 berths with all the services available to boaters in a modern marina. In 2019, the French Federation of Marinas will award it the “Qualité Plaisance *****” label. It is also part of the “Clean Ports” certification process and aims to obtain the “Active in Biodiversity” label through innovative environmental actions such as the installation of artificial nurseries to house post-larvae.

The aquarium Oniria of Canet-en-Roussillon
Not far from the port of Canet-en-Roussillon is the Aquarium Oniria of Canet-en-Roussillon. The Aquarium of Canet-en-Roussillon dates back to 1983 and was built on 700 m2 of an old fishery. The establishment hosted 1000 individuals of 350 exotic and Mediterranean species in 55 aquariums totaling 170 m3 of tank.
This dilapidated building no longer offers the inhabitants of Canet-en-Roussillon and its visiting clientele an experience on a par with the rest of the infrastructures that the city can offer. The choice was therefore made to build a new establishment capable of accommodating the many clients of the old aquarium and attracting new ones.
The new establishment named Oniria was then born. This building, 5 times larger than the old aquarium, now covers nearly 3,500 m2 and contains a total of more than 1,200,000 L of water. It is composed of 83 tanks that present to the public more than 3500 individuals of 660 different species that are grouped around 10 universes.
Light on ports photo contest
A photographic contest dedicated to amateur photographers.
This contest is organized at the initiative of the Association des ports de caractère, the Union des villes portuaires d’Occitanie and the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie des Pyrénées-Orientales. Its concept is to give amateur photographers the opportunity to present unique pictures highlighting the ports, the sea or the river of the Occitanie region. Many of you have taken beautiful pictures of our port. So why don’t you participate?
The second edition of this competition has officially begun. This year’s theme is:
“Between summer and winter season, between sea and river. Marinas, fishing harbors, commercial harbors… The Occitania region from a new angle.”
To participate, entries may be submitted until June 30, 2022. One photo essay will be selected per port and submitted to the Port Captain’s office or the designated yacht office. Among all these selected reports, the three winning reports have the privilege of being presented in addition to their exhibition at the OFF Perpignan festival from August 27 to September 10, 2022 (festival that takes place on the same dates as the international festival Visa pour l’Image).

Comments from visitors
Great location and elegant boutique hotel. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. It is located at the quieter end of the boardwalk, so it is quiet. The rooms are very clean, as are the common areas. The individual reversible air conditioning was welcome.
We had a room with a sea view, which was very nice, especially when watching the bad weather coming. As it was December, we did not take advantage of the small balcony. We were a 10 minute walk along the beach, the main square and many restaurants. I would have given it a 5 but had two small concerns:
1 No real makeup mirror – I found it inconvenient to use the bathroom, especially since there was nowhere to plug in my hair straightener.
2 only two servings of milk but 4 servings of coffee. I know if I had gone to the front desk and asked, I would have had more, but I was comfortable in my fluffy white bathrobe.
I would definitely recommend this charming hotel and will return.
Relaxing at the BW Canet-Plage hotel
The BW Canet-Plage hotel is located in a very pleasant and quiet area, close to the seaside. Upon arrival at the hotel, it is easy to find a free parking space on the main road, a few steps from the hotel reception. From Carcassonne airport, it’s an easy drive to the hotel (about 80 minutes). Check-in is very efficient and you get what you ordered. The room itself is very clean and very well appointed, including the bathtub and toilet. From the room, you have a beautiful ocean view (if you ordered an ocean view room, as you should). From the hotel, it’s about a 60 second walk to the Balearic Sea for a nice, refreshing swim. All the staff are very sympathetic and helpful. Overall, we are very pleased with our stay this year, our second at BW Canet-Plage, and are already planning for next year.
Small, friendly and charming place
Wow, this hotel is the true definition of 5 star service. The staff is just wonderful. All smiling, so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much to ask. Thank you all!
The hotel is very well located, with a beautiful and direct view of the beach of Canet and a small golf course right across the street. There are many restaurants and stores along the main street. Although it is a very busy area, our room was very quiet and we slept very well. As for the size of our room, yes, it was rather small but still nicely furnished and with a comfortable bed. We had our two very large suitcases on the floor and we could move around without being disturbed, so there was no problem with the size of our accommodation.
The sleeping comfort was very good. The rooms are air conditioned so we were able to set the right temperature for a pleasant atmosphere. We would also like to mention that our room was very clean thanks to the two ladies who worked there every morning. Overall, we really had a pleasant stay. The only suggestion would be to provide more TV programs in English. As there were only two non-French programs and the weather was bad, we would have liked to be able to watch TV and understand more ;0).
