Porquerolles, Port-Cros, Ile du Levant

Untouched and almost uninhabited, the islands of Hyères are a true paradise for those who love nature,  sea and beautiful beaches.

They are located in the PACA region, Provence Alpes Cote D’Azur, and exactly in the department of the VAR.

Are easily accessible by ferry/boat landing that depart daily from various ports, including Sainte Maxime, Cavalaire, Le Lavandou. The fastest way is starting from Hyeres (10 minutes by boat), a town a few kilometers from Toulon and 50 km from Saint Tropez.

The small archipelago, consists of three islands, Porquerolles, Port-Cros and the Ile du Levant.

The island of Porquerolles is inhabited, there are bars, restaurants, bike rental and other services for its visitors. But its strengths are the beautiful beaches, lush vegetation and trails, especially appreciated by lovers of cycling and trekking.

Port-Cros is home to a national park and one of the three is undoubtedly the most natural and unspoiled.

The Ile du Levant is appreciated by naturists from all over the world, as the seat of one of the oldest nudist camps of France.

For those who spend their holidays in Provence and the French Riviera, is a must not to be missed!
