About Cote d'Azur
The Côte d'Azur, often known as the French Riviera, is the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast corner of France. The crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea along the French Riviera are where the majority of the established scuba diving sites in France are found. The underwater landscape features natural coral reefs, colourful rocks, pinnacles, canyons and small caverns and drop-offs that form the local underwater topography. Marine life is abundant, divers can see barracuda, grouper, dentex (pelagic snapper) and sunfish along with molluscs such as octopus and crustaceans including lobster. The scuba dive sites of the Cote d'Azur stretch from Spain to Italy, all along the French coastline.The best localy recommended dive sites are around Hyères, Marseille and Cavalaire as well as near certain locations further east along the Côte d'Azur. The entire coast is rich with breathtaking submerged rock formations and dive wrecks. For wreck dives along the French Riviera, check out the island of Poquerolles not far off the coast of the city of Toulon. Le Donator, a wrecked cargo ship and Le Grec, another cargo vessel, are the most favorite among the divers. Some other popular dive sites of the Côte d'Azur are The Coral Cave, La Fourmigue, Le Robuste II, Le Togo, La cassidaigne and quite a few more.
