Beautiful island

Simply stunning. A truly magical island that we enjoyed exploring for 2 days, we would have stayed longer but unfortunately too expensive! Would highly recommend.

I travelled here by boat with family and really enjoyed the pirate feel of this small port. We enjoyed walks around the park and a great lunch too. It must be lovely out of season when it's less busy too.

A beautiful island with fantastic hikes. A must do! go around the north island first day and then to the south. The whole island in one day woudl be a pity as there are many nice places to stop, swim, picnic or just realx looking at the sea.

I have travelled the world and always come back to my amazing Provence and French Riviera... There is no place else like the Islands of Hyeres (Golden Islands as they shine under the sun of the Mediterranean sea). Just go to either Porquerolles, Port Cros or le Levant. But avoid the peak season in July & August if you really... More

Took the 0930 boat from Le Lavandou to Port Cros island. Cost about €25/person based on 2 adults and 2 children. Some discounts are available if you have previously visited other National Park attractions on the mainland. 35 minutes of sea borne bliss, the Mistral had been blowing so there were some white horses. Arriving on the island is like... More

We spent three days on this island devoid of traffic and the other trappings of modern life. The mistral blew the whole time, but the sun shone. The coastal scenery Is spectacular, especially when the sea is rough. The inland walks, in the shade, would be lovely even in high summer, but you do need to be fit, as the... More

The boat ride to the island is wonderful, and you can immediatly get started with your tour of the island once you get off the boat. I advice you to wear good shoes and no flipflops. It's achievable but not pleasant. Bring your camera for some amazing nature/sea pictures and bring enough water for the walks.

This island is incredible beauty and solitude. You feel like you've fallen into another time and place. The boat ride over is gorgeous, and the hiking on the island is quiet and picturesque. One tip: beware of the jellyfish in the water at the swimming beach. Otherwise, enjoy this incredible place as one of the true unspoiled beauties in the... More
