Plage de Sylvabelle

Discreet and out of sight, this beach is accessible by nearly a hundred steps… This beach is more private and there is a superb view of the Villa Couadan that overlooks it! Don’t worry about parking, take advantage of the free summer shuttle bus. This is an unsupervised beach. There is a restaurant nearby but no shops, services or amenities.


Plage d’Héraclée

This is an idyllic beach whose name is reminiscent of Heraclea Cacabaria, in memory of the Ligurians who settled here almost 3 centuries ago. The beach is 400 m of fine sand, facing the islands, Îles d’Or, that you can visit to have a moment of escape and relaxation. There are magical sunsets on these islands.

Practical information & services: restaurants, sunbathing chairs, free summer shuttle stop nearby


Plage de Gigaro

Gigaro, a natural beauty whose fame is well known! Steeped in history with the landing of the allies, it has also been used in many films. It marks the entrance of the Cap Lardier Estate which is carefully maintained and protected by the Port Cros National Park. You can walk along the coastal path that will lead you from coves to beaches, as wonderful as wild. For the more curious, do not miss the Marine Trai which is a 20 minutes walk away at the Jovat Beach. Gigaro offers a superb view of the Islands, Îles d’Or, and magnificent sunsets. A dreamy setting!

Practical information: lifeguard station, showers, toilets, blue flag award, handiplage, free shuttle buses/paid parking (depending on season) Services: shops, restaurants, water sports
