YACHT CHARTER COTE D'AZUR WEST

This region expands from Les Lecques to Cavalaire-su-Mer and the southern approach to Golfe de St- Tropez.

All along the coast there are marinas situated very close to one another, so you can find many places to moore. When sailing, places you should see are St.Tropez, Cannes, Antibes which are more familiar, but also those less known as Sanary, Iles des Embiez, Porquerolles and Le Lavandou.

Along this coast there are lots of anchorages to be used but you need to pay attention on the weather conditions when approaching any of these anchorages. In the summer you can usually feel light brezze blowing from the south east, called marin, while mistral is less frequent at that time of year. Also some of the anchorages may be overcrowded in the summer, especially at weekends, but since many of the boats depart at the evening, there should be enough mooring place.

Some of the attractive locations on this coast are:
