Our opinion on the Rochers du Dramont – Cathedral Beach

Adresse of the Rochers du Dramont – Cathedral Beach : Cap du Dramont 83700 Saint-Raphaël

The rocks of Dramont are located opposite Ile d’Or in Cap Dramont (also nicknamed rocks of the cathedral), which attract many young people in summer. There are no beaches here, only rocks where many reckless people come to dive (many deaths - see one of our pictures with a banner at the access trail). Access to the sea is very difficult (not to mention the ascent). We were reluctant to mention this area on our site but we have chosen to in order to discourage people from coming there. However, this site is recommended for a stroll.

To get to Cap Dramont from St Raphael, go to Agay by the seaside road. Turn right after Debarquement Beach at the roundabout towards Poussai Port. Park in this street. Turn left in the port at the end. There are stairs on the left at the small beach. Turn right on the forest trail at the crossroads (one can reach Camp Long Beach). There is a small path that goes straight down (see our photos) with stairs after the ascent (the main road is on the left). The rocks are 5 minutes away.

Many young people come to dive from the rocks in summer. Alas, several tragedies are to be deplored on this site. It is very dangerous.
