Stand-up paddles et kayaks rental
Plage du Pellegrin
Café Léoube offers daily kayaks and stand-up paddles rentals for family outings, with friends or on your own. For one hour or half a day, enjoy the Pellegrin beach or try the adventure to the Léoube beach, enjoying a splendid panorama from the sea.
There’s no better way to explore the clear blue waters that stretch along our coastline than on a kayak or stand-up paddle. Available to hire every day through the summer season you can enjoy the magical serenity of our coastal waters, paddle out to find your own hidden coves or visit neighbouring beaches for a picnic. Perfect for an adventure with family and friends or to enjoy a little solitude, our kayaks and stand-up paddle are available to hire for 1 hour, 3 hours or a half day. Some of our favourite places to visit in the waters near Léoube are:
- Pellegrin Point Beach: a sandy beach at the tip of the Pellegrin peninsula looking out to St George’s Chapel, covered in large part by Posidonia sea grass.
- St George’s Chapel Beach: a sheltered pebble cove l looking out to the Isle of Léoube
- Léoube Beach: a peaceful sheltered beach with white sands and breathtaking views out to Îlot de Léoube and back towards the Chateau.
- Cape Léoube Beach: a hidden bay between Estagnol and Léoube beaches, also accessible on foot.
- L’Estagnol Beach: a beautiful crescent-shaped beach in a sheltered cove east from Léoube.
- Grand Jardin Beach: a long beach of white sands, great for swimming where you can see Îlot du Jardin and Château Bregançon
A very special site, the Cap Benât where Chateau Léoube is located, is a protected site of precious natural beauty where you can find a huge variety of wild flora and fauna as well as wild animals, insects and pollinators which all contribute to the natural biodiversity that we work hard to sustain at the estate.
As you paddle out into the sea you will float over a special meadow of seagrass called Posidonia, an aquatic plant that forms a vital part of the marine ecosystem here, protecting against erosion and absorbing excess carbon. This marine plant is known as the ‘lungs of the Mediterranean’ and has been protected since 1988.
The varied seabed in the shallow waters here also include corals from about 20m offshore, many rock pools and a huge variety of indigenous sealife – seabream, red mullet, scorpion fish, snappers, brown groupers, red starfish and sea urchins are just some of the wild creatures you might spot.
Once you return from your adventure, Pellegrin Beach is the perfect place to sit back and take in the view over to the Isle of Porquerolles. Why not join us at Café Léoube for aperitif, rewarding organic lunch or evening of live music to finish your day in style.
