Visitors can explore the area by taking a number of walking routes include the Blanc-Martel trail which ends at the Point Sublime lookout.

The 12th century Chapelle Notre-Dame de Beauvoir in the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a must visit and set within the Verdon Natural Regional Park there are a number of museums including ceramics at the Musée de la Faïence with its displays of ceramics and the Musée des Tourneurs-sur-Bois which showcases local woodwork.
