Le Lavandou and the surrounding areas offer exceptional diving, thanks to the underwater diversity present.
Unspoilt flora and fauna, and diving sites that are world renowned.
The mild and temperate Mediterranean climate enables diving lovers to come and practise throughout the year, for a weekend, or during a week-long family holiday.
DIVING AS A FAMILY
– SNORKELLING IN LE LAVANDOU’S COVES, HAVE YOU TRIED IT ALREADY?
Put on your mask and snorkel and dive, to explore underwater life.
You’ll experience a change of scenery and unusual encounters!
Children will delight to share these unique moments with you, observing the flora and fauna. Little fish, wrasses, combers, crabs, octopus, starfish will come to meet you, even touch you, and you can admire them in their natural setting.
The water is clear, so it is easy to appreciate them, swimming along the rocks in these little coves with fine sand that Le Lavandou offers you over 12 km of coastline.
– THE PORT-CROS UNDERWATER TRAIL –
After 35 minutes walk from the Port of Port-Cros, you’ll arrive at Palud beach.
The underwater trail is an original way of diving in the clear waters of the island of Port-Cros to explore the underwater flora and fauna with your mask and snorkel.
Port-Cros underwater trail is on the surface (although the site goes down up to 10 metres depth), and can therefore be experienced by anyone who can swim and use a mask, snorkel and flippers.
This underwater trail is ideal for family snorkeling. http://bit.ly/PortCrosSentiermarin
