The island, classified “Heart of National Park” since 2012, offers a great diversity of landscapes: steep coast, sandy beaches and cultivated plains. The charming village of the island welcomes you for a gourmet break. You can rent a flat there for the night. You can also rent a bike to ride along the various paths through the island of Porquerolles. Beyond this inhabited village, the rest of the island is wild and includes forts that used to hold a strategic place of defense.
Porquerolles is part of the archipelago of the Hyères islands, also called the “Golden Islands”, (“Iles d’Or”), with the islands of Port Cros and the Levant in particular. The island of Porquerolles is the largest and most visited among the three islands. Shaped as a 7-kilometers long and 3-kilometers wide crescent, it stretches over the Mediterranean Sea and enjoys a particularly pleasant climate, mild winters and hot summers with a light sea breeze. It is sunny almost every day there!
