What to do in Bandol?

Bandol is a great holiday destination if you want to be by the sea. The city is bordered by many beaches :

Bandol is located just in front of the Paul Ricard Islands : the island of Bendor and the island of Embiez. It takes 10 minutes by boat to reach them. These two islands have retained a very wild character. You will be able to discover many places of interest, including the Paul Ricard Oceanographic Institute and the Wine and Spirits Museum.

On the land side, Bandol has a golf course (at Dolce Fregate). Every day, the market is held in the Place de la Liberté. There are also night markets in summer on the quai Charles de Gaulle.

Bandol is also an AOC recognized throughout the world. Bandol wine is even celebrated during the Millesime Festival every December.

If you like hiking, you can take the coastal path which offers superb views of the sea and the creeks. With your family, you can visit the Sanary-Bandol Zoo, which is both a refuge for many animal species and an exotic garden with hundreds of plant species.

What to do around Bandol?

Bandol is less than 15 Km from Toulon. The creeks of Marseille are about thirty 30 km away. Cassis is 20 km away. Just next to Bandol, you can visit the pretty little villages of Sanary-sur-Mer and Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer. The main attraction of the coast is of course the beauty of the beaches bordered by the azure blue of the Mediterranean sea. In summer, the number of tourists is very high. It is often more interesting to discover the coast in June or September when not all summer visitors are yet on the coast.



Provence is the region where I was born and also one of the most beautiful in the world. I am very proud of it and I love to share my secrets with tourists passing through the Var and the French Riviera.
