Next August 21 will be the second fireworks display of the summer. And so that you can appreciate it at best, here are our top 3 places to admire it.

Why August 21?

August 21 in Bandol is a bit like our own national holiday. The day Bandol was freed from enemy troops during the second world war. A historic date therefore that we owe it to ourselves to celebrate in memory of the combatants.

So where to watch the fireworks? Where will you be in the best position? Where can you get the best photos from? We know the suspense is unbearable. Without further ado, here are the answers to your questions, here: the top 3 places to admire the fireworks.

1. The most immersive

Our top 3 starts with the most immersive point of view, the one that will allow you to be at the heart of the event and appreciate all its facets (fireworks and music). This place is none other than the port of Bandol. The fireworks are usually fired either from the sea wall or from the sea, so you can admire it with your head raised towards the sky and towards the horizon.

So, sit on the terrace or on a bench, facing the port and to its pointy and prepare to be invaded by palm trees of light and other fairy fantasies.

2. The most unusual

How about seeing the fireworks not from the coast, but from the sea? With Bandol in the background? Well that's what our partner offers Atlantis. This August 21, from 21 p.m., take to the open sea to attend an exceptional show, the fireworks seen from the sea. A unique and unusual opportunity to spend a very good evening. Prices and reservations on 04 94 32 51 41.

3. The most disconnected

Holidays are also about disconnecting from everyday life and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. So why not just enjoy the show from the beach, feet in the water ? For that, take your towel and your picnic for an evening on the Central beach. On the program: fun, swimming and a taste of freedom with the highlight of the show, the icing on the cake, the long-awaited fireworks. Simplicity, happiness and tranquility, wouldn't that be la dolce vita?

The bonus of 2023

Extreme Surfing Club Bandol invites you to a special evening. Come watch the fireworks from the sea, on a paddle or aboard a kayak! An unusual experience that promises to be extraordinary. Practical information: departure on August 21 at 20:20 p.m. at the club (launching slipway, Corniche Bonaparte), €25 per person (decreasing price according to the number).
