Anyone familiar with Collioure?

Thinking of renting a Villa down there next year for August, anyone know what the score is with regards to Ribs, launching, berthing etc?

have a look at it on google Earth - loads of photos and loads of RIBs in the harbour. There looks like a possible slipway at the head of the harbour but there seems to be a footbridge across so what sort of air draft it has I don't know.

Also there is a slip on the beach but wether or not it is for public access I don't know.

It's a stunning area I had never heard of - must try to visit one day!!!
