Our opinion on the Saint Caprais Cove

Adresse of the Saint Caprais Cove : Chapelle St Caprais 06400 Ile de St Honorat

On the west point of Saint-Honorat Island, around the Saint-Caprais chapel, you will find several little pebblestone coves. Due to the presence of numerous rocks, swimming is rather difficult and it is advised to wear shoes to venture into the water. The most interesting cove is situated behind the St. Caprais chapel, easily accessible by a trail. The view of the Esterel is magnificent.

These coves are accessible by turning right upon exiting the boat. The different coves are found all along the west point (above Barbier Point).

St Caprais cove - St Honorat island

This is the first little cove that we find in the northwest of the island coming from the unloading stage. The beach is narrow with some algae but remains calm and little known. However, there are numerous rock formations--bathing shoes are indispensable.
