The most beautiful beaches in Carqueiranne

Between Toulon and Hyères, Carqueiranne is a popular destination on the French Riviera. This seaside resort has a small marina and beaches very appreciated in summer by holidaymakers.

The Pradon beach

The largest natural beach of Carqueiranne has a privileged location, which shelters it from the prevailing winds. The fine sand seduces the swimmers, who can enjoy the sun comfortably lying on their towels. A first aid station ensures the surveillance of the bathing in season. Showers and sanitary facilities provide holidaymakers with all the comfort they expect. It is also possible to rent mattresses on the spot, to have lunch and dinner with a breathtaking view of the sea.

The Peno beach

Created in 1990, this beach was developed in three successive coves. Tamarix trees provide pleasant shade for swimmers looking for coolness after sunbathing. A skateboarding track and a volleyball court enhance the leisure offer. A first-aid post ensures the supervision of swimmers in season. You can easily rent mattresses, or reach the shops, cafés and restaurants located above the port, about 100 meters away.

Le Red Bau

At the western end of Carqueiranne, the Bau Rouge beach is a paradise for naturists… and sea urchin fishermen! To get there, you have to take a long staircase of 220 steps. The setting is sumptuous, the rocks taking on various hues, sometimes beige, sometimes purple, sometimes burgundyr. Wild, the beach of Bau Rouge is not supervised: you will have to be careful, especially in windy weather.

The Nautical Activities

The quality of its waters is not the only tourist asset of Carqueiranne. The seaside resort also offers many water activities for the whole family. You can discover the coast by kayak or canoe, test your balance during a stand up paddle session, rent a pedal boat… Thrill seekers prefer other activities such as windsurfing, towed buoys or jet skiing.

A sea excursion can take you to the nearby peninsula of Giens and the Hyères islands. The sea bed can be discovered during an initiation to scuba diving, or during a snorkeling session.
