Jogging by the sea (from the Bastide to Le Gaou)

Type of course: on the road by the sea

Approximate distance: 5 km round trip. Variation: for the more athletic, if you wish, instead of retracing your steps, you can go through the Chemin de la Gardiole, then the Chemin de la Lecques to take the Chemin de la Bastide. You will pass through the natural space of Mont Salva. The view is beautiful ! Add about 3 km to the base course, and a big climb for about 2.5 km. This route can also be done in reverse.

❤️ We like:do this race early in the morning to take advantage of the silence or at the end of the day when the light decreases every second and admire the sunset mid-way before making the return.
Good to know: When arriving at Gaou a self-service fitness machine (Airfit) in case you want to continue training while enjoying a breathtaking view!
