Estérel mountains

Highly recommended
Lying between St-Raphaël and La Napoule, this low-lying, ravined mountain range meets the sea in a series of promontories, deep creeks, headlands and beaches, its fire-red colours forming a striking contrast with the indigo blue of the Mediterranean. Just off the coast lie thousands of rocks and islets covered with green lichen, while submerged reefs are clearly visible underwater. Perfect for swimming in the sea, this area also boasts a number of uncrowded footpaths which also make it ideal for walking.
