Up until the 60's Port-Barcarès was just a small fishing village but has since flourished as a result of "Mission Racine". The aim of the project was to develop the South coast of France so as to accommodate more tourists. Port-Barcarès was then transformed into one of the most popular family resorts. Nowadays, during the summer there are almost 120,000 people staying in Port-Barcarès.
Port-Barcarès is a luxurious resort, built to meet the heavy demands of increased tourism. The city of Port-Barcarès has been rewarded for its efforts winning a Blue Flag for its beaches and ports (A quality assessment for its beaches, bathing water and the environment of the port) and the first regional prize for flowering plants.
By day, the crystal waters of the eight-kilometre coastline provide an idyllic setting for festival goers to sunbathe. As well, Port Barcarès offers Free Wifi on the beaches, harbor and all main points of the city. Boasting exquisite landscapes, there is plenty to see and do in the town and surrounding areas of Port-Barcarès. With acres of beautiful woodland, miles of creeks and cliffs surrounded by the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Port-Barcarès is an ideal holiday destination and a perfect home for a festival as spectacular as ElectroBeach.
