When in Bandol, don't miss the opportunity to visit Bandol Island. It's tiny and very chraming. There are quite some restaurants/cafes, so you can combine little ferry trip with a lunch or dinner. Unforgettable!

Stayed in Bandol at the Ike de arousse hitel - superb. Went on boat over to Bendor for lunch. The island is well worth the visit, it has hotels and restaurants but one night would be sufficient

Nice view for a few hours trip in front of Bandol. You can take a boat for a few minutes trip and visite the island.
