The Côte d’Azur, also known as the French Riviera, extends over the departments of Alpes-Maritimes and Var, from Toulon to Monaco.
Bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, the Côte d’Azur is a haven of peace and owes its name to the writer Stéphen Liégeard who, from his villa in Cannes, used to gaze upon the azure colour of the sea. From the rugged coastline and spectacular cliffs of the Alpes-Maritimes to the protected shoreline of the Var via the small rocky coves of the Cap Esterel, the French Riviera offers a multitude of landscapes. It is a real treat to sail through the succession of headlands, peninsulas, bays, islands, picturesque harbours or modern marinas. Thanks to its privileged geographical position as well as weather conditions, the French Riviera is an ideal destination and a true paradise for boaters.
The French Riviera enjoys a Mediterranean climate meaning that weather conditions are very pleasant. You can sail with peace of mind: the sun shines almost 300 days per year thus offering mild temperatures throughout. Rainfalls are rare but can be abundant, especially in March, April, October and November. During the summer season, nice weather prevails!
Prevailing wind on the Côte d’Azur is a thermal sea breeze that blows from the east-south-east. The northwesterly Mistral wind can blow in this area but moderately and occasionally. In July and August, the prevailing wind on the French Riviera is a westerly wind called Ponente, which is a synonym for beautiful light breeze.
These conditions are ideal for sailing and delight many boaters every year. During the summer season, don’t expect to be the only yacht in the marinas! But to find a little more peace and quiet, you can moor in one of the many anchorages the coast has to offer.
