Beautiful peninsula. Still very wild. You can walk all around on the Chemin du Litoral and jump for a swim in wild little beaches in the middle of the rocky pathway. Bring some snorkeling equipment and a good pair of water shoes.

Delightful beaches and promenades abound. Parking at certain points is a bit of a problem. We did it the easy way a couple of times and used the 67 bus from Hyeres. Went as far as the Tour Fondue and wandered from there. A pity...More
