Then set sail to the beautiful coastal towns that are situated between Cannes and St Tropez.

Then head over to Théoule sur Mer, which is the perfect place to try out your on board water toys! With a quiet and open bay, and a beach that is largely undiscovered by mainstream tourists, you will be sure to have a fantastic day in the sun. Set up anchor here for the night, or at your preferred coastal spot and enjoy a delicious meal made for you by your on board chef.
