The shoreline of Saint-Raphaël also includes the 36 km of coast situated along the massif of the Estérel.
As early as the 5th century BCE the rugged shoreline was a booming commercial hub, and shipwrecks from the Second World War are scattered on the seabed among the remains of ancient seagoing vessels.
Relics from the region’s 2500 years of maritime history are on exhibit at the Archaeological Museum in Saint-Raphaël.
