Discover the village of Carqueiranne and its small port, near Toulon

Carqueiranne is a little Provençal harbour on the Var coast, in the bay of Giens between Toulon and Hyères. To the west, following a narrow road along the Mediterranean coastline, you reach Toulon Bay.

Almanarre beach and the Giens peninsula

Travelling east, along the coastline decorated with pine trees and agaves, you will arrive at Almanarre beach, a world renowned windsurfing spot. If you continue in the same direction, you will discover the Giens Peninsula, with its fir trees and little harbours at La Madrague and Le Neil. Just opposite you will see the famous Golden Isles : Porquerolles, Port Cros and l'île du Levant (given over to nudism).

With its 7 km of fine sand beaches and sunny coves, Carqueiranne is a well-known sports and seaside resort. This is mainly due to its micro-climate (and also its bouillabaisses).

Walks and hikes

This micro-climate facilitates flower growing and perfume production. Their enchanting fragrances will delight you, especially the tulips and gladioli. To the north, you can walk in the hills covered with Aleppo pines, constituting a green mantle in both summer and winter.

Market every Thursday morning

Carqueiranne's little Provencal market takes place every Thursday morning on Avenue Jean Jaurès in the centre of the village (see map). It's a friendly market, perfect for stocking up on local produce and good cheer before going for a drink on the village's pretty harbour.


If you're looking for a good restaurant in Carqueiranne, we recommend "Lou Pétoulet" for its refined cuisine and tables in the pines overlooking the Mediterranean, or "Le Flamingo" for seafood right on Carqueiranne's marina.
