Today we decided to head west and explore the coast between Theoule-sur-Mer and St Raphael. We had discovered that the easiest way to get anywhere in this area was to get on the motorway (and pay the tolls) to the nearest exit to the place you want to visit rather than take the coast road anywhere between Nice and Cannes. This we did today to get to the other side of Cannes
The coast from Theoule –sur-Mer is relatively undeveloped due to the Massif de L’Esterel Park. It was a lovely drive and we stopped many times to enjoy the views and explore the coast finding old German fortifications and some interesting rock formations.
We then found a road into the park and discovered and area of walking trails so we all enjoyed a good stretch of our legs before heading back to base.
