This heavenly spot has everything you need for your holiday: large beaches with transparent water, wild and unusual animals and plants, and activities of all kinds for all ages.

And last but not least, don’t forget to take your camera with you, the creeks and beaches with their turquoise water make up the most marvellous landscapes!

“Holidays in Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur have become a real ritual for our family. Every year, we just love to come to his region we adore with our children. We love what nature has to offer here, and we never get tired of discovering surprising new places. This time, we’ve out down our bags in Cavalaire-sur-Mer in the Gulf of St Tropez, and it was a really good choice !!! It’s a very practical little town because you can do everything on foot or by bike. On top of the big main beach, there’s a more secret beach, Plage de Bonporteau.  I was actually very surprised to discover that a lot of people who live in the region don’t even know of it. Even though it is a little outside the town, it’s only 1½ kilometres to the west of the town centre. So you can go there on foot, it takes about twenty minutes, or park for free along “la route de Toulon” after the roundabout when going towards Le Lavandou.  Surprisingly enough, the beach isn’t signposted. We wander along Chemin Bonporteau, for about 5 minutes, on a fairly steep 450-metre-long downhill path. And then we come to this superb wild beach, surrounded by rocks and vegetation, and sheltered from the wind. We arrived early in the morning and were completely alone on this fine sandy beach. It’s even better out of season because while the kids play, I could enjoy the colour of the sea which is even more beautiful in the morning. We got the drone out to admire the sea from above and that’s where we said to ourselves that we’d found a real treasure!”

A sea and nature holiday

Take time to discover the many wonders that Cavalaire-sur-Mer has in store and the many activities you can try there!

  • Enjoy a swim from the Plage de Bonporteau, with its crystal waters, lush vegetation and exceptional sea life!
  • Try one of the many water activities to be found in Cavalaire-sur-Mer, such as diving, ascensional parachute, jet skiing, surfing or wind-surfing!
  • Be tempted by an outing to the Maison Foncin, and set off to discover a place steeped in history in the middle of nature, on over 200m2 spread over 3 floors in a sublime Provencal manor house.
  • You can walk along the Sentier du Fenouillet, among the untypical wildlife where the sea almost seems to blend in with the land. You’ll appreciate the revitalizing peace and quiet and far from the bustle of the town.

“As a real nature lover, I enjoy travelling all around France and particularly in Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur. I’ve been a very keen photographer since I was small and it’s now my job. I specialize in landscape photography, I love sharing my photographic adventures with my family and helping people to get to know new territories on social media. There’s the never-ending pleasure of capturing a unique moment and creating the most beautiful memory.”
