Tiny Plage du Rayol and Plage de l’Escale are particularly enchanting beaches: they’re backed by pine trees and have a restaurant on the sand. As the D559 hugs the coast going west, you'll reach Plage du Layet, the beautiful beach at Cavalière (not to be confused with Cavalaire-sur-Mer).
Domaine du Rayol
This stunning, lush Mediterranean garden, with plants from all Mediterranean climates the world round, is wonderful for a stroll or a themed nature walk (adult/child €11/6). The dense flora cascade down the hillside from a villa to the shushing sea, and while flowers are at their best in April and May, it’s always worth a visit.
