On the left of the Fort de Brégaçon (summer house of the French President) a multitude of beaches is stretching each one more beautiful than the last, the beaches of Cabasson, le Pellegrin, l’Estagnol… Well-protected of East wind, you may appreciate the turquoise blue water, thin sand, little coves and wild environment with garrigue perfume (typical South East flora).
The harbours of Bormes and Le Lavandou
Don’t miss out the medieval village of Bormes-les-Mimosas.
La corniche des Maures between Le Lavandou and the Cavalaire bay
Very nice coast with little coves and bays where you can anchor but only with good weather.
Between Cavalaire and Saint Tropez
You pass the Capes of Lardier, Taillat, Camarat (possible anchorage between the capes), then the big and well-known beach of Pampelonne to arrive in the bay of Saint Tropez. Thanks to the visit of numerous celebrities, its little picturesque streets and its Provençal market on Tuesday and Saturday morning, the village of Saint Tropez is a myth. At the bottom of Saint Tropez bay you have the “Provençal Venice” Port Grimaud, you should not miss this beautiful lakeside city.
The well-known Corniche of l’Estérel also called the “Golden Corniche” because of its beauty thanks to flamboyant red volcanic rocks and its mountains over 450 metres in height.
The isles of Lérins (in front of Cannes)
The isles of Lérins are composed with two isles Sainte Marguerite and Saint Honorat. The isle of Saint Honorat well-known for its monastery the isle Saint Honorat is a peaceful and wild place. You have a possible anchorage between the two islands (be careful in high season, the place is full of people) and respect the speed limitation.
You will have an important choice of harbours: Golf Juan, Antibes, Marina Baie des Anges…
From Nice to Menton
The peninsula of Saint Jean cap Ferrat, Cap d’Ail, and until Monaco, all these places are well-known for their beauty. The coast is marked out by rocks and coves and is often hard to reach it on foot.
Splendid villas with beautiful gardens are often on the shores of the sea which makes this place really amazing. You still could stop in the mythical harbour of the principality of Monaco and be among the splendid yachts. Your trip stops in France in Menton, last city before Italy.
