Our opinion on the Gaou Beach

Adresse of the Gaou Beach : Sentier du littoral 83230 Bormes-les-Mimosas

Gaou Beach in Bormes les Mimosas is found between Faviere Beach and the tip of Esquillette. In this big cove, we find several sand and stone beaches as well as discreet little creeks separated by rocks. On the first big beach, coming from Bormes, we find a dock. The most interesting is found in the cove (see photos).

Around this beach we find vacation residences (access is impossible from the road). You must therefore take the coastal path from Faviere Beach (on the right) to get to this beach and follow signs for Cape Benat. Access is easy to the first beaches.
