Baie de Cavalaire  is surrounded by hills which slope gradually to its shores. It is entered between Cap de Cavalaire and Cap Lardier, 3.7 miles E. Numerous villas are scattered along the head of the bay, and a conspicuous hotel  stands close to the shore, 1 mile N of Pointe de Cavalaire.

Baie de Cavalaire offers shelter from the Mistral, but is untenable during winds from the E through S to SW. The bottom, consisting of mud and weed, is a good holding ground provided vessels do not anchor in too great depth where the steep slope may cause dragging.

Free anchoring is prohibited in the bay.

There are moorings available at a reasonable price. Beware of wind and waves that come from different directions. This can make this place uncomfortable during the night.

Entre le Cap de Cavalaire et le Cap Lardier, la large baie de Cavalaire ne lève jamais une houle très grosse, elle est bordée d'une longue plage de sable coupér par les petites avancées des pointes de Cuisses et Vergeron.
Le rivage ne devient rocheux et escarpé que 2 milles avant le cap Lardier après la pointe du Breuil où l'on trouve un mouillage abrité par vent d'E sur son flanc N.

Mouillage sur fond de sable après le troisième épis de rochers de bonne tenue dans 5 mètres d'eau. La houle qui rentre dans la baie peut rendre le mouillage inconfortable si elle est significative. Il existe des bouées de mouillage organisé devant l'entrée du port en saison et demie saison ( dates à vérifier ). En demie saison il vous sera demandé de passer par la capitainerie du port pour payer votre nuitée...C'est très pratique, surtout quand on a rien à faire à terre. D'après le "collecteur" il faut se plaindre à la mairie.
