Fancy taking home some great memories of your family camping holiday by the Med?
It’s time to head to the Jardin des Mattes snorkelling trail!
Set between the beaches of L’Argentière and Le Pellegrin, facing the Golden Islands, this signposted snorkelling trail in La Londe-les-Maures allows you to discover our rich underwater ecosystem in all safety and at a depth of less than 4 metres.
An amazing experience for families, friends or simply on your own, the trail offers a fun and instructive insight into our natural riches – just like our botanical trail at Camping de La Pascalinette®, but underwater!

Mediterranean Marvels at La Londe Les Maures
You will discover a host of fish species, molluscs, shellfish and even starfish, together with flowering Posidonia meadows. This protected marine plant provides precious oxygen to the Mediterranean waters.

How to visit the Sentier des Mattes?
The site is open to anyone equipped with a mask, snorkel and flippers and who knows how to swim. The trail is marked out with 7 numbered buoys fitted with signposts to direct you.

Benefiting from a lifeguard in July and August, the site also offers guided tours run by La Londe-les-Maures Tourist Office (€8 for adults, €4 for children aged 8-12 years). “Aquaguides” for identifying the various species are also available from the Tourist Office.

What we love? The magnificent seascapes, clear waters and many marine species!

After a maiden dive with bottles in one of the heated pools at our campsite’s water park in the Var area, South of France, Provence-Mediterranean, you’ll be ready to try a snorkelling trail or full-scale maiden dive out at sea in the magnificent Bay of Hyères, on Porquerolles island or at Port-Cros National Park!

Get ready for an adventure-filled camping holiday in the Var, South of France, Provence-Mediterranean!
