A cove at the foot of the rock of Saint-Barthélémy
The Calanque de Saint-Barthélémy is located at the foot of the Rocher de Saint-Barthélémy (Estérel massif) on the Corniche d'Or. This small steep cove of 20 meters and red gravel has turquoise and clear water which makes it an ideal point for snorkelling (diving mask and snorkel). It is located right next to the Cap Roux encampment area, a natural marine reserve with a remarkable bottom quality and biodiversity.

|Type of Beach||Pebbles|
