Port Hercule is one of the very few deep-water ports of the French Riviera. Set in a natural bay, the port was used since ancient times. Its modern-day existence started in 1901 as a project to answer the need of a harbour accommodating a large number of yachts. The construction works were completed by 1926. Since then, the port has been substantially renovated twice - in 1970 and in 2011.
Today Port Hercule covers approximately 160,000 sq metres and provides 700 berths to vessels up to 135 meters in length. The outer pier has a depth of 30 metres, the outer port has a depth of 40 metres, and the docks' depth ranges from 5 to 30 metres.
Situated in the famous Condamine district, the port is less than a kilometre from Monaco-Monte Carlo Railway Station, and close to all leisure and shopping facilities Monte Carlo has to offer. Its unique location and modern services make Port Hercule the perfect venue for high-end events such as the annual MONACO YACHT SHOW (MYS).
