An idyllic landscape!

The Sainte-Croix Lake is the fourth largest artificial lake of the metropolitan France with its 22 square kilometers.

The dam of Sainte-Croix was officially inaugurated in 1975. It contributes to supply a great part of the area (Marseille, Toulon…) with electricity and drinking water.


On Aiguines area, fitted beaches will allow you to enjoy swimming in emerald green water of the lake, in an absolute calm (motor boats are forbidden).

A first-aid & lifeguard station is opened in July and August and provides the Galetas beach with watched bathing.

Nautical trips: canoë-kayak, pedal or electric boats, are accessible to everybody to discover  the Grand Canyon spectacular spots.
