The “tail” of the lake heads back up into the Verdon gorges at the “Pont de Galetas” in the northern part between Aiguines and Moustiers. This is a chosen spot for kayakers.

There are always life guards on duty. Only electric motors are permitted to avoid water pollution.

The boating centers are in Sainte Croix du Verdon, Les Salles sur Verdon, and Bauduen.

Many water sports are available: sailing, wind-surfing, kayaking, canoeing, boating (pedal-boats or motorboats). The prices are reasonable and you can choose the amount of time you want to spend. People also enjoy swimming and fishing in the Sainte Croix lake.

If you choose to do boating or canoeing/kayaking, you will be able to admire the Verdon Gorges from very close!
