At the Bendor island
Neptune, Bendor island

Perhaps the major attraction in Bandol besides its beaches is Bendor Island. The island is privately owned, but visitors are welcomed.

The island has a hotel, a few villas, five restaurants, an artists village, boutiques and an art gallery, tennis courts, water sports facilities and a diving club. Two museums are open on the island in season: the Universal Exposition of Wines and Spirits and a Museum of Ricard Advertising Objects. €11-€13 (ferry return fee; reportedly it's free if you have a reservation at a Bendor restaurant).




  • 1 KV&B, 5, rue de la Paroisse, +33 4 94 74 85 77, . A so-called bistronomique restaurant. Good food though with a modern twist. There is also another couple of nice-looking restaurants on the same street.
