Sunsets over the sea are our specialty in Bandol. And to admire them in all their splendor, here are our top 3 perfect places!


Capelin beach is located west of Bandol, at the entrance of coastal path. There you will find a small pebble beach bisected by a peninsula.

On the beach or on the benches located just above, is the ideal spot to come and admire the sunset all year round. After a day's work, during an aperitif with friends or just to take your canine friend out, do not miss this exceptional moment.

Encanet point

Located next to the municipal tennis, also on the coastal path is Pointe Encanet. A small place where you will find a few benches to sit and admire the spectacle. Here you will have the horizon as far as the eye can see and the sound of the waves as an atmosphere. It is not well ?

The cornice

Change of scenery. Let's go to a place much closer to the downtown, our pretty cornice. With her plunging view of the sea and its full west orientation, this corner of Bandol is obviously part of our Top 3 places to admire the sunset. The only place where you can almost certainly see the sun set in the sea… We say that, we don't say anything.

The mistral is our friend

It is true that the mistral, this wind very well known in the Mediterranean, can disrupt your boat trip. But it will be your best ally for sunsets.

If you have the chance to come and admire the sunset in Bandol after a day in the mistral, you will be treated to a totally unreal spectacle. Sky of fire, pink / red clouds and golden sun… We never tire of this landscape which seems straight out of a dream.
