Aigue Bonne is an old quarry exploited for "esterellite", the "esterel blue porphyry." It is located near the seashore, on the St Raphael commune, in Var Department, in the south of France.

Access is easy from the N.98 route, going to "Le drammont" 1 km before "Drammont plage" turn left to the military cemetery and here turn right to "le parc d'aigue bonne" you'll see the quarry 200 m before reaching this point.
