The Esquié cave

la grotte de l'esquie pendant la prospection archeologiqueThis half-submerged cave is located on the northwest coast of Cape Esterel on the Giens peninsula, close to the coastal path. The cave is exposed to easterly wind. The duct is cleared at the entrance, however further inside the rock, it narrows considerably, and a heap of garbage and debris clog the end of the duct. Steps are carved into the rock to gain access from the shore. It seems that this cave has been used for storing fish, however it is impossible to define its type: - A short-term storage to keep fresh the fruit of the peach, - A type storage tank. In both cases no trace inside or outside the cave, only stairs carved in rock are evidence of human occupation.
