Welcome to La Favière, the vibrant neighborhood of Bormes les Mimosas where the captivating marina awaits. Nestled along the coast, the port of Bormes is a gateway to a world of treasures, inviting you to embark on unforgettable adventures in the town and its surrounding areas. Spanning across 7 hectares, this remarkable marina can accommodate up to 950 boats, offering a perfect haven for both brief stopovers and extended stays. Its idyllic location facing the Golden Islands, within the Pelagos Sanctuary, makes it an ideal stop during your Mediterranean explorations.

A multifunctional marina

La Favière Marina is a multifunctional hub that caters to the needs of seafarers. Its development began in 1969, in response to the surge in yachting popularity. To safeguard against the persistent eastern swell, a protective dike was constructed and reinforced in recent years. The marina prioritizes safety, protection, and an array of services. Open year-round, it provides daily rates and year-long packages for boat owners. Managed by the International Yacht Club of Bormes les Mimosas, it offers essential facilities such as water, electricity, and sanitary amenities. Additionally, you’ll find a shipyard, maintenance services, mechanical companies, as well as conveniences like a laundry, restaurants, and various water sports and diving activities. The marina proudly displays the European Blue Flag, a testament to the exceptional quality of its waters.

Fun fact: 🌊

Between 2018 and 2020, redevelopment efforts were undertaken to reinforce the marina against strong eastern swells. The implementation of an ecopod/accropod system, a wave-deflecting wall, and a spillway basin ensures its resilience.
