Barcarès Water Ski Lift

Our activities

42 years already, the cable ski at Port Barcarès was installed in 1971 on the lake at Leucate, in order to offer exciting new watersports to holidaymakers. Ideally situated just a few meters away from the Mediterranean sea and right at the heart of the Montpelier – Toulouse – Barcelona triangle, it is a unique setting to experience  fantastic watersports including  water-skiing, the kneeboard and most exciting of all, the wakeboard !

Cable Ski Activities


11 riders or skiers can use the cable ski simultaneously on the lake, towed by a cable on a closed 900m circuit. Whether you are a beginner here for the day, or an experienced rider, you will adore this unusual sporting opportunity. In any case of fall a lifeboat will pick you up.

The restaurant
