Cavalaire-sur-Mer is a Mediterranean coastal resort with some 5000 inhabitants. Central in this picturesque spot lies Camping de La Baie. This camping site is surrounded by deciduous and pine trees and is less than a 10 minute walk away from the beach and the glorious Mediterranean. The entire family has been considered on this camping site: a swimming pool, well organised entertainment and ample amenities (catering and sanitary facilities).
Spacious camping in the shade
Camping de la Baie is slightly sloping. It is therefore laid out in several terraces. From the top of the camping site you have a splendid view of the Bay of Cavalaire. There are some 350 pitches on the grounds, 150 of which are touring pitches and a further 190 rental accommodation units.
The camping pitches are sufficiently spacious. If you wish, you can park your car in a nearby parking area. This way you have more space to sit and move around. Many of the pitches have shade because of the hedges and trees. Therefore, you also have ample privacy.
Fun in the water
The camping site has an attractive swimming pool ( 250 m²) which is enjoyed by all. This is open throughout the year and is heated in the low season. Activities such as aqua gym are offered here on a regular basis. There is a toddler pool for the little ones. Also nice: the two heated jacuzzis near the swimming pool.
Entertainment for all
The camping site is well known for its professional entertainment (also in English). This is very extensive and geared towards both young children and teenagers. Organised activities are also offered regularly, such as jeu de boules tournaments and disco evenings. Guests can also amuse themselves in the playground or at one of the many sports facilities.

Location so near to the town and beach is the big attraction and rightly so.
Site is rather crowded with a feeling of lack of privacy on pitches which are hard, gravelly and dusty.
Only a few water taps with low pressure and a long walk to empty your toilet.
Pool facilities are excellent but because of the depth would like to see a lifeguard present.
Reception ladies need a course at a charm school. They could learn a lot from their male colleague and the wonderfully helpful lady in the shop.
High unguarded steps at sanitaires are a worry.
Would we return? For the location alone, a big yes.
We stayed end of May and most of June.
Stayed for 2 weeks and quiet to start with and then got very busy. Good location for shopping, beach, markets etc. All walking distance and a free shuttle bus along the sea front. Beaches get very busy as popular with the French from the north. Pitches are quite close and stones. Could do with a little more TLC as we had high winds and leaves were everywhere. Not many English there and the French not very friendly to us. Don't think I would return but cannot criticise it too much.wifi not good and expensive.
Nearest site to the bustling and interesting town of Cavalaire sur Mer. Excellent bus service for visiting the region with tickets costing only 3 euros.
Staying for almost a week. While we were there we had none of the previously reported problems with water temperature, ants, low hanging branches, pitch sizes and access etc.
Facilities at the campsite were good. WIFI is expensive at 5 euro a day but a weekly ticket is 12 euro. However for paid wifi the signal should be better.
We spent 10 days at this site in September 2014, during our stay we only had two showers where the water was barely warm enough so shower.
Having complained about the water temperature nothing was done.
Some pitches were infested with ants and some motors homes had ants on their roofs and all over awnings.
some pitches are very small and the roads between rows of pitches are very narrow and some have over-hanging branches from trees and whilst we were there a few motorhomes suffered damage from these branches. So be warned.
We had the misfortune of being on this site at the same time as 150 Swiss teenagers celebrating their last night away. If they weren't kicking a ball about they were kicking empty water bottles - a very annoying noise at midnight. Just as they left, on our 2nd night, 2 coach loads of French children moved in and the teachers used claxons at 11.30pm to round up the children from all over the site. The 3rd night the entertainment went on till after 1am, and the ensuing game of football and car doors slamming finally stopped at around 2am. When we complained to reception she shrugged and admitted they had had a few complaints. When we saw the posters advertising football and beer in the bar we knew it was time to move on.The campsite restaurant, bar and bakery is open to the public. There is no security at all. Out of 4 showers we had 2 cold and 2 warm - on alternate mornings to each other. Cavalaire is a lovely town but would never use this site again and left earlier than was planned.
The facilities at this site are good, but our pitch was rather small and tight together with other pitches. All gravel. Close to the town and the beach, but unless you like big and busy sites this is not for you. A typical seaside site, with clean and ample facilities, but too big for us. Free wifi and also takes dogs. The vet right opposite the entrance was very helpful. Lots to see out and about from Cavalaire.
Very friendly campsite. Pitches not great but site good. The town excellent, Carrefour near and plenty of small shops. Very clean town. Lovely pool and jacuzzi, free wifi hotspot, staff excellent. Toilet and shower area very clean.
