Here is one that has won the heart of the office. We had the chance to (re)discover the botanical and animal garden ZOA with Davy, the animal manager. In addition to our adoration of the otters and macaws, we quickly understood that this place is a true paradise for children!

Animals as diverse as they are varied, play and picnic areas, a super fun exhibition room... Families can easily spend an afternoon at the park without getting tired! As a bonus: the possibility of making courses and immersion mornings with the trainers. To be even closer to the animals and participate in their well-being.

Family walks

The botanical route

Le parcours botanique Bandol

If your little one is more natural, discover with your family the botanical trail. The latter lists the different species that you will find throughout the quay. A way to rediscover the trees and shrubs that we encounter every day.

To make it even more fun, select one or two species not listed in the guide with your child and send us to bandoltourisme@bandoltourisme.fr a photo and a description. Your discovery will then appear in future versions of the course.

Picnic on the coastal path

Pique-nique famille engraviers bandol

A large part of the coastal path is accessible to all ages, in particular, up to the beautiful Engraviers beach. Pack in your backpack a good picnic and a few beach towels and leave from the port of Bandol towards the beaches. You will thus cross Renecros and its cushions of Posidonia as well as all the pebble beaches of the city up to that of the Engravers. The best part of this beach: an arc-shaped approach, without rocks, perfect for perfecting your ricochets.
