The most beautiful places
Lac de Castillon

The must-have

Plage du Plan in Saint-André

A major beach not to be missed, it unfurls its large lawns on which to fill up on vitamin D.

The area dedicated to supervised swimming is gently sloping. It’s very popular with children, and you’ll be happy to accompany them as they explore the floating water park. At last, soothing water from the highest peaks of the Mercantour will bring you all the freshness you’ve been dreaming of.

Nathalie’s tip: don’t jump off the rocky bars and bridges. The danger is real, because the funds are not very substantial! Avoid jumping off rocky bars and bridges, which can be very dangerous as the bottom is not that deep.

New: With the soft link from the village of Saint-André-les-Alpes, access the beach in complete safety and discover an interpretation trail.

Plage de la baie du Touron

The charming beach of Touron Bay

At the foot of the pretty little village of Saint-Julien-du-Verdon, the Touron bay is the ideal place to stop off at the water’s edge. The trees along the beach provide the shade you need for a refreshing siesta lulled by the lapping water. The immensity of the lake unfolds before your eyes. A great invitation to swim, unless you prefer to hire a boat or canoe to explore the wild shores and stop off at some of the more exotic coves.

Did you know?

Part of the lake is a military zone. This naval base carries out sonar and acoustic tests. It is forbidden to enter this area by swimming or using watercraft.

With my dog

Dogs are not allowed in supervised swimming areas, so if you want them to have a dip too, choose unsupervised areas.
