What travellers are saying
- As this used to be a military airfield, you can imagine how much space there is.
Also there are areas for specific sports and activities. Enormous areas for car parking as well, although the access roads need a degree of care - no doubt to "calm" the traffic.
High season seems to have parking charges, but off season is free.
The buildings are rather run-down, but the emphasis is on outdoors. A couple of cafes are on site, as well as a small tourist info office.
Good place to simply go walking, both beachside and grassland.Written 28 October 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We went here one evening the noise level is very high and can be quite irritating after a while. The rides are pay as you go though you can get a discount if you have a luna card from the tourist office or other location. The rides are expensive for what they are so we did 4 rides and then left. The kids had fun but we didn't go back, and the kids didn't ask to either which says a lot. Average amusement, the tin can alleys are a rip off too.Written 15 September 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Parking in the car park, to the South East of the dam on Google maps, the dam is about 15 minutes walk.
It is an easy walk, not really accessable with push chairs or wheelchairs, but easily done by pedal bike or on foot.
The car park is really big, and is almost directly under the motorway. It is a bit remote, but lots of people park here as it's a kick off point for biking or walking in the area.
If the weather is warm, you should bring hats and water, as there is little shade on the walk up. The dam is about 15 minutes walk, about half way the path splits and we took the lower part. The upper path goes towards the dam top.
The dam is a site to see, the most memorable but for me was a bolt with a nut on it, sticking out of a buried piece of concrete in the path, a couple of hundred metres from the dam.
The dam can be climbed on at the bottom so it is really good for photos. You should read up on the dam collapse prior to arrival as signage is not great.

- Aqualand Frejus can be a great day out - but a fast pass (20 euros per person) is essential. So it is important to factor this additional cost into your visit (20 euros per person) before you commit. Without one, you'll spend most of the day in LONG queues, infuriated by watching fast pass wrist band wearers going round and round the rides whilst you wait in line endlessly. In this review I explain how it all works, so bear with me...
We've been to Aqualand Frejus many times, over many years. The kids have always loved it, and we've really enjoyed our days there. However, Aqualand is a business that is designed to squeeze the punters for every euro it can get. Go in with your eyes (and wallets) open or you are likely to be very disappointed. We have learnt that there is a way of doing Aqualand to get value from it - and that this involves paying quite a lot more that the advertised price!
Aqualand opens at 10am. By 10.30 the queues are building. By 11am, expect them to be long (up to an hour for the popular rides is normal) and expect this to be the case throughout the day. Basically, Aqualand sells far too many tickets relative to the throughput rate of its rides and the result is hideous queues and fed up punters.
The solution to this is the fast pass, which costs 20 euros per head. Fast passes can only be bought at the venue, and are limited in number. So, you MUST arrive as the gates open to buy them directly from the kiosk to avoid being disappointed. If you don't arrive until later in the day they will be sold out.
With a fast pass you get a wristband that enables you to access all inflatable ring rides (which are the best rides in the park) through dedicated lanes and using special 'fast pass' inflatables (coloured red). The fast pass transforms the time spent queuing. For example, with a fast pass the 'king cobra' ride wait is about 15 minutes rather than about an hour without. Other rides can be as little as 10 minutes wait time which with a fast pass but as much as an hour without.
So, my strong advice is to buy the fast pass. This means that a day at Aqualand is really more like 50 euros per person - or about 200 quid for a family of 4. Factor this in from the start and you are likely to avoid the disappointment that others here have expressed (legitimately) through their one star reviews.
There are, however a couple of quirks to note. Firstly, the fast pass is not transferrable. The wrist band cannot be removed and passed between family members. So, don't try to cheat the system as it won't work. Secondly, the inflatable rides (which the fast pass really works for) all need two people to ride them. So, if you are a family of three (say one parent and two kids) it might be better to just get two fast passes as the third person (usually mum or dad) won't have a
partner on the rides and so won't be able to go on them.
Finally, remember that Aqualand will squeeze you for everything. Car parking? That'll be 4 euros!!! A locker? That'll be 5 euros. A lounger? That'll be 4 euros. I suggest packing a cool bag with your own food and drink, finding a shady spot (close to the entrance to the twister ride is a good spot), bringing towels and mats etc.
Go in with your eyes open, buy fast passes, and expect to pay 200 quid for the day (for a family of 4) and you'll have a blast.Written 23 August 2022
- The Cloister is interesting, but the small "bestiary" paintings are fascinating. They are unlike anything I've seen, and I believe well worth a visit.Written 12 February 2019
- We enjoyed our day trip to Fréjus and must commend the very helpful tourist office.
The old town is charming and peaceful with loads of places to eat, drink and just watch the world go by. A lot of it is pedestrianised too.
There are things to do for everyone and we never made it to the beach.
Don’t bother with walking to the Theatre Romain, the photos on the website cunningly avoid all the metal seating that now surrounds it.Written 4 May 2022
- Absolute fantastic hike. Definitely recommend sticking to the pathway just above the road for much better experience and shady walk with stunning views. Well rewarded at the top with panorama from st Tropez to Cannes. Felt like I was in the Grand Canyon.Written 26 October 2021
- Not great and very overpriced for what is offer. All uphill in that heat, looks like it can be doing with an upgrade on facilities especially for the animals.Written 26 July 2022
- We come here very often to wander round this charming little park, admiring the amazing variety of trees, listening to the birds or simply sitting on one of numerous benches and looking out to sea! If you like walking, which we do, go through the small gate and turn left towards the port. It makes for an awesome walk and later on in the year you get to walk past a very old fig tree which smells out of this world! Enjoy!Written 11 March 2020
- Percivere on finding the museum, although it is better sign posted now, and you will find an extremely interesting little museum of the history of the French marines. Mostly in French, obviously, but take the time to translate. You can rush round in half an hour or take your time to understand the displays and while away a couple of hours. The Marines on duty are helpful and friendly and there is a small selection of souvenirs. Well worth a visit.Written 5 November 2019
- A few miles out of town then a 500m gentle walk up through the trees and you’re amply rewarded with this lovely little ‘chapel’ inscribed inside and out with drawings and mosaics. They were all apparently devised by Cocteau but done after his death by another talented artist, maybe one of the twins.
Just standing in the middle of the chapel and staring at the walls and ceiling, more and more came to make sense. The ‘Last Supper’ was fantastic and even we recognised some of those portrayed, like Coco Chanel. The mosaics outside are also brilliant in design. It’s been renovated recently and is in great condition.
This was part of a grand plan of all sorts of things for the area but the only one to actually be realised.
Amused by the guy who traipsed all the way up the path then looked in through the door and disappeared when the ticket officer came out of his room and asked for €3!Written 4 May 2022
- The place is not well maintained and I think it's down to lack of funding rather than poor maintenance. You pay 2€ for entry to keep it opened and maintained, so do not expect perfection in everything for your money. The place is peaceful and as any temple/pagoda has its spirit and aura. It's definitely worth a visit if you know what you are looking for and your entry fee will help to maintain the place.Written 21 July 2016
- Soft natural sand beach with ample space, restaurants, etc.
At the end of the day, a nice beachfront market is set up there too.Written 5 August 2020
- Nice experience, wine is definitely worth the visit. We brought some home with us to Denmark. This is a low stress place, but not a lot of information is given regarding the wine which is the reason for going to this place.Written 14 July 2022
- Located in a beautiful and big clean park, the building is of palladian style with a beautiful glass ceiling art deco style. The big rooms are now a museum with roman artifacts. A well done display. The upper floor is used for photography exhibits.Written 17 September 2019
