The Brusc and its activities

Location of the Brusc

The bay of the Brusc is perfect for boating, sailing and all water sports. Its exceptional barrier reef and lagoon provide a favorable development site for many underwater species. The quality of its water and the richness of its seabed are known among scuba divers. 

The Embiez Island, the creeks and the wooded rocky coast covered with a vegetation of holm oaks and cork oaks attract nature-oriented tourism.

Many places are still wild and look like a mix between the South of Bretagne and Corsica, a surprising and magical blend under the light of Provence.

A rugged coastline bordered by a customs-official path extends from the tip of the Gaou to the Cap Sicié. 

The village of the Brusc belongs to Six-Fours-Les-Plages, which is a charming seaside town located between sea and forest on the Provence coast. You can enjoy the way of life in the south along its 18 km of coast, alternating between sandy beaches and wild coves, marinas and preserved forests. If you prefer rocks, pebbles or sandy beaches, you will find here all you could wish for!
