French Riviera: what are the most beautiful marinas in the region?

The French Riviera offers a wide variety of marinas, from the most luxurious to the most unique.

Some of them have even received the Blue Flag in 2019, an international environmental and tourist label rewarding beaches and marinas that implement a responsible sustainable development policy. Discover our selection now!

The Menton Garavan marina

Inaugurated in 1967, the Garavan marina is located 700 meters from the Italian border. With its 770 moorings, it is one of the largest marinas on the French Riviera. Its postcard-like landscape, oscillating between the blue of the Mediterranean and the colorful tones of the Belle Époque buildings in Menton, makes it a popular port for boaters and visitors from around the world.

The Cassis marina

The Cassis marina is highly popular among vacationers every year. It offers a magnificent view of the sea and the steep cliffs of Soubeyranes. It also has the advantage of being located in close proximity to a beautiful small sandy beach. A small marina with immense charm!

The Sanary-sur-Mer marina

Nestled in the heart of the old town, the Sanary-sur-Mer marina (83) has a typical Provençal configuration that is now rather rare to find on the French Riviera. Housing a small fleet of traditional Provençal fishing boats called "pointus", it offers a superb sun-soaked panorama. The added bonus? You can buy fresh fish at the fish market every morning on the quay.

The Old Port of Saint-Tropez

The Old Port of Saint-Tropez has managed to retain all its charm despite the 6 million tourists it receives every year. Located facing the magnificent pastel-colored facades of the old town, it offers no less than 734 moorings, allowing visitors to admire a wide variety of boats, from small traditional fishing boats to gleaming luxury yachts.

The Port-Grimaud marina

The Port-Grimaud marina, a lake-city in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez classified as a 20th-century heritage site, offers a unique mooring in front of each house. Built on the model of Venice, it allows visitors to navigate the city by water and admire the colorful buildings that beautify the place.
