Pointe des Sardinaux (Sainte Maxime)

This natural small headland is basically a former military site (see the WW2 bunker concealed in the greenery north side).It has then been preserved from construction and is perfect for a picnic experience surrounded by the sea. Some majestic maritime pine trees will help you stay out of the blinding midday sun. Water is extremely shallow all around: it may be a good idea for the kids to play but La plage de la Nartelle at 5 minutes walking (north) is better for swimming.
