Ports of embarkation: Nice, Antibes, Cannes, Saint-Maxime, Marseille.
With Mainè you can visit the French Riviera from the sea, sailing along the stretch that goes from Nice to Marseille. It is one of the places where the concept of tourism as we know it today was born and there are several points of interest.
Nice is the biggest center of the whole area, and it is from here that you can leave to make route towards Antibes, Cannes and the Lérins Islands, where you can spend calm nights in the harbour.
Following you find the large bay of Agay, followed by St. Raphael where you can make new provisions, and finally, after having left behind Saint-Maxime, you arrive in the most famous spot: the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. Here you will be able to moor in Port Grimaud, a little Venice elegantly built in the Sixties, and eat at the restaurant in front of the boat. Obviously Saint-Tropez itself is worth a visit.
Hyères islands are the next destination. You can circumnavigate the Ile du Levant, Port-Cros and Porquerolles. In Porquerolles there are beautiful bays where to anchor for long swims in front of sandy beaches and you can moor in the harbor to visit the small village crowded with bars and good seafood restaurants.
For those who go beyond, after leaving Toulon, there is the most powerful natural wonder of the area: the calanques de Marseille. These fjords of rock with their white cliffs overlooking the clear blue sea are magnificent to see from the boat, and in some of them you can even spend the night moored. They are a paradise for trekking and climbing enthusiastics.
