Coastal Trail

Discover the Côte d'Azur coastline in a different way by taking the Coastal Path. Magnificent places with sublime colours await you, don't forget to bring your camera !

A stroll between land and sea

To date, the Var coastline offers walkers a trail to cover more than 200 kilometres. In Saint Raphaël, the coastal path starts from the Port Santa Lucia to the Pointe de la Beaumette (Agay) and winds between the sea and the Massif de l'Estérel, a few metres above the waves, whose limpidity sometimes reveals the beauty of the seabed. It takes about 2h30 to cover a length of 8.5 km. Traced on the old customs officers' route, the trail includes so-called sporting passages, it is preferable to walk it with flat, non-slip shoes.
