Pramousquier is the last of the 12 beaches set between
two outcrops of rock. It has a lovely sandy beach with turquoise waters. There is a restaurant/bar set on the beach. If you want they will hire out peddlos. A great way to spend an afternoon checking out the coastline.
For an afternoon/day of cycling why not hire a bike and travel the Cote d'Azur Varoise - 22km's (15miles) of easy biking from Pramousquier to Lavandou and back.Stunning scenery.
Visit the Lavandou International Harbour and see the fisherman coming back with their catches.

Away from the beaches visit the hill top villages or remains of medieval and historic pasts.
