The Cap Lardier is the eastern point of the Cavalaire bay. This headland is one of the most southern points of the Saint Tropez peninsula, as it is situated on the same latitude as the Corsican Cap.
Its coastline, granitic in the north, with more foliaceous rocks in the south, is of a rather smooth aspect. Only towards the Andati headland the coastline seems rough, with cliffs falling straight into the ocean, making access impossible, just like the dense brushwood which covers it, treating you with its diverse Mediterranean colours and scents. Here you can look at an amazing parasol pine tree, in the Brouis valley, a tree which delights everyone by its sparkling, shimmering shades of green. Several protected beaches along this coastline are peaceful havens for every visitor
