Cavalaire-sur-Mer is a delightful town on the Côte d’Azur located close behind the Pradels mountain range, between Saint Tropez and Le Levandou. The town has an easily accessible port with a capacity of over 1200 berths and a helicopter landing pad.
With its 4 km of coastline, Cavalaire-sur-Mer is an ideal destination for those who want to spend time relaxing on the French Riviera.
Among the most famous beaches of Cavalaire-sur-Mer, places deserving a visit include Paradignon beach, which lies within a protected natural area, has preserved its beauty and has no building close to the coast or, Bomporteau, a free beach surrounded by rocks covered with vegetation, which contributes to its wild and pure appearance.
Gigaro beach, just 5 km from the Hotel de la Calanque, is located in a strategic position, served by numerous businesses such as supermarkets and hotel restaurants. The beach is characterised by golden sand that contrasts evocatively with the transparent colour of the sea.
Domaine du Rayol
Five minutes from Cavalaire you will discover Domaine du Rayol, also called “the garden of the Mediterranean”. This park houses a collection of hundreds of plants that flourish thanks to a Mediterranean-type climate, but in fact come from all over the world such as Australia, California, Chile, South Africa, Mexico, Asia, etc.
The beaches of Rayol-Canadel are instead particularly appreciated for their crystalline water and for the characteristic rocky walls that form inlets and rocks from which to dive into the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. Canadel beach is the most easily accessible and therefore often the most crowded.
St Tropez, the meeting place of the international jet-set on the French Riviera, is only 15 km from Cavalaire. A magical, iconic place, it is a symbol of the ‘good life’ and the mythical aura of the Cote d’Azur, frequented by people such as Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiapparelli and Brigitte Bardot, who contributed to its growth by crystallising its image as a perfect status symbol and luxury destination.
Everything in Saint Tropez echoes the myth of the Riviera, from its crowded beaches, to the luxurious boats moored at the marina, to its legendary nightlife among crowded bars and exclusive clubs where you can sip a drink or even champagne.
19 km from Cavalaire-sur-Mer is Le Levandou; originating as a fishing village, it has today become one of the most popular destinations on the Côte d’Azur. Le Levanou with its 12 km of coastline is home to some of the most popular beaches on the Riviera, such as de la fossette, d’aigubelle (beautiful water in French), the selvaggia plaga in Cap Nègre and the plaga de Cavalière.
