Lac de Sainte-Croix
This lake created at the edge of the Gorges du Verdon in 1975 covers 2 200ha. Its 10km of intensely blue-green waters are ideal for water sports. Lined with typical Provence villages and beaches, it also affords lovely views of the surrounding landscape, including the Plateau de Valensole. The best views, however, are from the Pont de Galetas, a bridge spanning the Verdon. From one side you can see the first section of the canyon and on the other there is a broad panorama over the lake.
