Le Lavandou is a lovely fishing village on the French Riviera, benefitting from 12km of sandy beaches. The town has a nice feel to it, and hosts a weekly fresh fish market every Thursday. There are plenty of restaurants and cafés in which to while away a sunny afternoon by the Mediterranean. The surrounding Provencal countryside is very pretty, and there are some wonderful marked walking and cycling trails nearby.
Le Lavandou has become a popular game fishing hub, and trips can be arranged from various companies at the marina. It is also one of the best diving spots in the South of France, due to its proximity to the Port Cros National Park, and the shipwrecks around the Iles d’Or. The waters are warm and clear, and divers can expect to see lots of groupers, and maybe even barracudas.
The Iles d’Or are a group of three islands just off the coast of Le Lavandou. Port Cros, Porqueroles and Le Levant, are home to some of the most beautiful scenery on the Côte d’Azur, with their crystal clear turquoise waters, and well preserved pine forests. There are strong environmental restrictions, and as such, there is a diverse range of flora and fauna to be found here.
The nearby Medieval village of Bormes-les-Mimosas is one of the most beautiful places in the Var region of France. The immaculate little streets uncover some magnificent architecture, some lovely chapels and some talented craftsmen at work.
One of the other great opportunities available in Le Lavandou is to rent a boat for a day and tour the beautiful coastline.
