History

Cavalaire-sur-Mer is probably an ancient Phoenician colony of the name of Heracles Caccabaria. There are also remains of a Gallo-Roman occupation in Pardigon.

The town was detached from Gassin in 1929.

The village is located on the route of the old railway Saint Raphael - Toulon (sometimes called Train Pignes), now defunct. However, we can note the location of the old railway line and follow its path (and in much of the coast from Le Lavandou to St. Raphael, Cavalaire is even a "Road Train Pignes").

During World War II, on August 16, 1944, it was one of the sites of a beach landing in Operation Dragoon, the Allied invasion of southern France. Every year, August 15 sees a parade of military vehicles and the reconstruction of a military camp.
