Past the Saint Tropez Peninsula towards Le Lavandou you'll find Cavalaire-sur-Mer, a beautiful yet unpretentious family-friendly beach resort set on a 3km stretch of white sand. Toulon-Hyeres is the closest airport, and the 7803 bus will then take you from the airport to Cavalaire. If coming from Saint Tropez, take the 7801 bus.
Unlike much of the Riviera, Cavalaire-sur-Mer is a town where restaurant menu prices don't tend to make you blanch and decide to gnaw on a plain baguette instead. The town is full of restaurants, cafes, snackbars and pizzerias- just wander along and take your pick. For great fish on the beach, take a long walk (or shuttle bus) to cheap and cheerful Terre de Sable, or get a takeaway pizza and sit on the promenade under the palms. For something fancier head to the port and get a table at Le Comptoir des Saveurs, or to Delicatessen restaurant on the Promenade de Mer. If you fancy a long rose lunch in the sun at a beach club, the Italian at Bellini Plage is normally a good option.

Being a fairly modern beach resort, there's not a huge amount of historical or architectural interest. With its rugged headlands and sweeping beaches, nature is the star along this part of the Var coast. Only 10 minutes from Cavalaire are the spectacular Domaine du Rayol gardens, with 17 acres of exotic greenery stretching down to the sea.

Things to Do Nearby
Cavalaire is a diver's heaven, sailor's paradise, hiker's happy place and beachgoer's dream. With 10 wreck dives just off the coast and the fresh clear waters often missing further up the Riviera, Cavalaire-sur-Mer is great for diving, while the large port also make it a popular spot for sailors, fishers and boaters. Take a ferry (or charter a boat) to the Iles d'Or (Golden Isles) to explore their tranquil coves and forest trails- you can also hire a bike on Porquerolles. Back on the mainland there's some splendid coastal walks- particularly around Cap Lardier, while the Maures hills in the hinterland have some absolutely wonderful hikes. Or you can just hit the beach and canoe, kayak and snorkel, sail, jet ski, wakeboard and windsurf your days away. If the kids somehow manage to get bored, there are waterparks further afield at Sainte-Maxime, and a theme park with rides at Gassin.

This stretch of the Var coast is beautiful beach country, with white sand beaches and creeks running down from the hills to create pools by big rocks and shady trees. Main Beach is long and very accessible for families- although a shuttle beach does spread everyone out very nicely! You can also take the shuttle around the corner to Gigaro beach, or just walk until you find your perfect patch of sand-Bonporteau and Le Dattier are lovely (and quiet). Even further afield, theorgeous Brouis beach is accessible only by coastal path (the walk will take you about 40 mins).

The closest golf course to Cavalaire-sur-Mer is the Golf Club Saint Tropez in Gassin. It offers an 18 hole, par 71 course set in countryside of hills, forest, vineyards and sea. It is relatively exclusive and therefore avoids the crowds you often find at other Riviera golf clubs. There is a golfing academy, an executive 9 hole course with driving range and an elegant clubhouse. Further afield is the Golf de Valcros course at Hyeres,a relaxed, family-friendly resort, or the excellent course at Golf de Beauvallon.The closest golf course to Cavalaire-sur-Mer is the Golf Club Saint Tropez in Gassin.

As mentioned, the town comes alive at night in the summer months, with concerts, shows, late night bars, and discos. There's a great little rum bar in the port called La Rhumerie,and there's a casino for those who like a flutter.For the most part it all still has a relaxed and fun feel to it though. If you want a grown up night of Riviera glamour, then this is not really the spot for you-head to Saint Tropez to quaff champagne and rub shoulders with the celebrities (or, more likely, with their bodyguards).
