Here you are on vacation with us and two existential questions torment you: where to have an aperitif? And where to admire the sunset? Don't panic, breathe, we have the solution for you. And even a 2-in-1 solution. Let us introduce you to our 4 ideal addresses in Bandola where you can enjoy a sunset aperitif as we like them.

The mirrey: a sunset aperitif in bandol as in tulum

First, let us tell you about the Mirrey. At the end of the port, next to the breakwater, on the Corniche Bonaparte, there are converted containers. From behind, one might wonder what it could be. But, when you arrive in front of this place, you are immediately transported. Driftwood atmosphere and ethnic fabrics, raw materials such as wood, terracotta and rattan, chill and relaxed music, by the sea with a view of the bay of Bandol… Go through the door of Mirrey and you'll think you're in a trendy establishment on the Mexican coast. On the kitchen side, the mezes and smash burgers (their specialty), are accompanied by cocktails, a glass of wine or an iced tea. All served chilled to counter the summer heat.

The Mirrey – Promenade Paul Ricard – 06 59 91 48 97 (without reservation).

Le Spot: breathtaking views of the Mediterranean

Here is one that lives up to its name. The Spot is the perfect place to watch the sunset over the sea while sipping a drink. This restaurant located at the end of Renecros beach, is open from noon until sunset. It is quite simply a little corner of paradise, where the song of the cicadas and the lapping of the waves transport you. Here, the wooden terrace faces the sea to a breathtaking view of the sea. An escape address, which wants to keep its zenitude. Thus, groups are limited to a maximum of 6 people. This, to respect the calm of the place. As an aperitif, come and enjoy refreshing cocktails and share a platter of charcuterie and cheese. While watching the sun go down in our beautiful Mediterranean, of course.

The Spot – 12 Corniche Bonaparte – 06 72 30 20 71 (without reservation).

The little ship: feet in the sand at Renecros

Le Petit Navire is organizing for this summer 2023, “Chill & Sunset” aperitifs, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, from 20 p.m. to 22 p.m. On the program: music, cocktails, tapas to share, deck chairs and a direct view of the sunset.

And imagine that a restaurant is located just above this idyllic place.

The mediterranean, in addition to its exceptional location, offers its customers an incredible view with its large bay windows facing the sea. The hotel bar will welcome you with pleasure for a drink at the end of the day. As a bonus: a small car park is right next door.
