Discover the sea bottom of the Var

The sea bottom of the Riviera, particularly the one of the Var, is ideal for scuba diving. The varied under water landscape offers clear water and a preserved flora and fauna, with many things to see. Not to forget: the water temperature which makes diving pleasant as from spring. At the Mediterranean Sea you can choose from a great number of diving centres for trips and introductions.
