There are many seaside resorts along the coast of Var such as Sainte-Maxime, Saint-Tropez, Cavalaire or Le Lavandou.
Var is a very popular destination in Provence and is a nice mixture of steep coastal paths, vineyards overlooking the sea, fine sandy beaches, and transparent waters... but it is also treasured for the charm of its traditional perched villages, lush gardens, olive tree fields and colourful markets.
This diverse coastline offers a thousand and one options for your cruise along the coast of Var. For your stopovers, you will be able to alternate between typical fishing harbours, marinas and remote anchorages.
The islands “Îles d’Hyères”, also called “Îles d’or”, are located just off the coast of this department and comprise the islands of Porquerolles, Port-Cros and Ile du Levant. Situated only a few nautical miles of navigation away, off the southern tip of Provence, you will get to experience a complete change of scenery and will be seduced by the warmth and sweet life reigning in this small corner of paradise.
Another interesting place to discover during your cruise along the coast of Var is the Giens Peninsula. This piece of land surrounded by the sea is a site of great natural beauty. It is also a place of pilgrimage for many migratory birds coming to find shelter in the marshes that were formed between the two sandy arms of the peninsula.
The dry and warm Mediterranean climate of Var offers ideal sailing conditions for a cruise between the coast and the islands. Prevailing winds on the coast of Var are the Mistral and Levant. The Mistral is generally dry and accompanied by sunny weather; it is a characteristic wind of the Provencal climate. The Levant, which is more present in the eastern part of the area, is usually quite damp and can blow strongly, especially in winter. The Îles d’Hyères are very sheltered and therefore offer peaceful navigations and calm anchorages. Along the coast, there are many ports to welcome you.
