Snorkling around Var?

Jump to last reply

HI!
We're a small family looking for a good spot between St Tropez and Hyeres, where there's a great beach with good snorkling! Please let me know if you have any tip!
Best,
Nathalie

    In this stretch, most of the coastline is rocky - that means excellent for snorkeling but no real beaches. There are a few sandy beaches in coves which are surrounded by rocky cliffs. These edges of the sandy beaches will be optimal for snorkeling. Here are the best of these beaches:

    - Cavaliere (spelling!) just in the middle between St. Tropez and Hyeres has a very beautiful sandy beach with rocks at the western and eastern edges.

    - Cavalaire (a different town, be careful with the spelling) have, in the opinion of many, the most beautiful sandy beach, consisting of white sand, but the western edge is the port (not good for snorkeling) while the eastern edge has natural rocks.

    - The large beach of Pampelonne (near St. Tropez) is the place to see and to be seen, not too good for snorkeling.

    - But a little further southwest, in the vicinity of the town Ramatuelle, there are breathtakingly beautiful sandy coves surrounded by rocks, called Cap Taillat and Plage de la Briande. These places are the best on the coast!

    - There are, of course, about two dozen more small coves surrounded by rocks. Just fly with Google Earth along the coastline.
