With an altitude of 350 m, Cap Sicié has unique geographical characteristics. It is an interesting site for observing seabirds, whales and the passage of post-nuptial migration. The vegetation is rich and of the maquis type, contrasting with the scrubland of the Toulon mountains.

The southern position and altitude make Cape Sicié a strategic point for migratory bird watching. Position yourself at the chapel of Notre-Dame-du-Mai from where you will enjoy a panoramic view from the Hyères Islands to the east, the islands of Marseille to the west and the Sainte-Baume massif to the north. On weekends, during the full period of post-nuptial migration between the end of August and mid-October, you can ask observers for information.
