A beach with a beautiful view in Sanary-sur-mer

If you're looking to be amazed, opt for Gorguette beach and Roc Amour beach!

La Gorguette beach offers a lovely view of the bay of Bandol and the island of Bendor. It has been classified as “good quality” since 2020 and has swimming surveillance during the summer season. Its access is easy with parking spaces nearby.

The Roc Amour cove, very close to Beaucours beach, is a beach with low attendance because it is difficult to access: access is via a steep path on the cliffside. Here you have a breathtaking view of the Pointe de la Cride!
