Your stopover in La Seyne

The Office de Tourisme de l'Ouest Var, the Mairie de La Seyne and the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie do their utmost to make your stopover in La Seyne as easy as possible and help you discover their territory.
A multilingual and professional team will welcome you during your stopovers. You will be able to obtain practical and tourist advices to visit our territory.

Seyne sur Mer, this charming city, which shelters a rich maritime history, overhangs the bay and the city of Toulon on one side and the Mediterranean Sea on the other.
The Corniche de Tamaris road offers an incredible view of Toulon Bay, including the base and naval warships. Tamaris is a small seaside resort born in the 19th century thanks to the crazy dream of a Pasha... with an exuberant, picturesque and exotic architecture.

The beauty of the Sablettes isthmus, which closes the bay of Toulon and forms the Saint-Mandrier peninsula, naturally makes this site an attractive place. This seaside resort dating from the late 19th century, features a Grand Hotel and Casino and is bordered by a long sandy beach with a lovely wooded park.

The city centre with its typical Provencal market, its beautiful church and the Pont Levant, is 20 minutes walk from the cruise ships. Passengers and crew can reach the city centre of Toulon either by sea (via a privatised service provided by cruise lines, or a public maritime transport service).
Le Var Provence Cruise Club

Var Provence Cruise Club 

What is the Var Provence Cruise Club? A common banner which since 2008 groups together 10 cruise ports of call and since more recently, 12 ports (from west to east: Saint-Cyr sur mer, Sanary-sur-mer, Bandol, Les Embiez, Toulon/La Seyne, Hyères, Porquerolles, Le Lavandou, Cavalaire, Saint-Tropez, Fréjus and Saint-Raphaël).

Created on the initiative and co-financed by the CG and the CCI of the Var, this structure, named Var Provence Cruise Club, is managed by the teams of the CCI Var who deploy its annual action plan with the main mission of developing the market shares of the destination Var on the cruise market in the Mediterranean, by scheduling stopovers and welcoming a large number of visitors (stopovers and excursions) so that the entire territory (coastline and hinterland) can benefit from the activity's spin-offs, both in terms of expenditure and reputation.

Its field of action: the club structures the Var offer (nautical and tourist) to adapt it to the cruise market and make it more attractive. The objective of developing the cruise sector in the Var is to promote and market it to the market, as well as to local players, which it mobilises and federates through actions in the field, animation and awareness-raising. The Cruise Friendly approach is one example.

13 partners in La Seyne sur Mer adhere to the Cruise Friendly charter to offer you a quality welcome and are committed on several points :
  • open their establishment and adapt their schedules to stopovers
  • offer a warm and smiling welcome
  • offer a discount or welcome gift
  • some knowledge of English
  • get the staff to adhere to the charter
