Have you already booked your stay at the Résidence du Bailli? Don't forget to include a naturalist outing in your activities while you’re in the Var. Just off the Iles d'Or, you can discover dolphins, sperm whales and other whales, and turtles.
Enjoy an unforgettable spectacle as you marvel at the dolphins playing in the waves left by the boat. While it’s a childhood dream for some, it’s definitely an unmissable experience for absolutely everyone, a magical, one-off encounter. Your holiday by the sea in the Var is a wonderful opportunity to go and meet and be surrounded by marine mammals while respecting their habitat.
Le Lavandou, home of cetaceans, forms part of the Pelagos sanctuary, a maritime area covered by an agreement that protects the marine mammals that frequent it.
A range of naturalist outings is available from Port du Lavandou. Set off to meet dolphins, sperm whales, sea turtles, sea birds, moonfish and other marine species on a boat trip. The lucky ones will even see whales! And a naturalist guide will offer explanations and teach you more about your little proteges.
Enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience of a participatory outing in search of cetaceans in the Pelagos sanctuary, creating precious memories as a couple, with family or friends as you encounter marine mammals and fauna.
The best months to observe cetaceans in their natural environment are from May to September. The tourist office at Le Lavandou will provide more information to help you plan your excursion across the turquoise waters.
And if you dream of enjoying this experience with dolphins and whales, book a family stay at the Résidence du Bailli. Rent an equipped, comfortable apartment for your holiday by the sea.
