This is a great place for a walk - even in the height of summer. Just take plenty of water with you. You can experience stunning views, the smell of pine trees in summer, the sound of the cicadas and the rough red rocks contrasting the sky blue and azure of the sky and sea.

Whether walking cycling or climbing this is the place to go. Easily accessible and worth a visit just for the scenery and rock formations.

Estertel Cavan site where we have been going for the last 8 years is a first class site with first class facilities and amenities. The area and coastline around Agay is second to none and with my wife and I coming from the Gower in Wales we can appreciate this, there is plenty to see and do within a 30... More

Esterel is my back yard .... been coming to Saint Raphael over 30 years .... and going to retire there soon ... part of living here, is what the whole area gives you back ... compare to Cannes and Nice area, there's a lot more mother nature in my area... normally I use l'Esterel for walking and biking ...several times...

We did this walk with our 1.5 year old daughter in a back carrier. This was a really nice walk with amazing views of the sea and the mountains. It seemed like all the people we saw along the route were locals which made it even more nicer for us. We did the walk at the end of December and... More

One of our favourite parts of Provence. Rugged, dramatic coastline backed by the Esterel mountains with many little coves and secluded beaches that are nowhere near as crowded in high season as the more well known places. From Le Dramont in the West, with L'Isle D'Or sitting juts offshore, to Theoule-Sur-Mer in the East on the edge of Cannes bay,... More

Accessible from the N7, Theoule sur mer, Agay and other spots on the Corniche d'or, this wonderful protected area of mountain wilderness full of marked trails is superb walking, running and biking country. I am constantly amazed how few people venture into the park. Outstandingly beautiful scenery with blood ochre rocky peaks and lush Mediterranean forests. Trails are easy to... More

All I can say is buy a detailed map of the area, rent a bike (or walk) and set off into the Park. Bring plenty of water because on a hot day it's hot!. The landscape and scenery is wonderful and there is a bit of wildlife too including some wild pigs. From the heights of the Massif you get... More

We were looking for somewhere to snorkel and found dramond where the parking is 10 minutes away from stunning coves with plenty of places to snorkle.
