Porquerolles, a corner of paradise

Porquerolles is the largest of the three Golden Islands. It is located in the Mediterranean, off the town of Hyères-les-Palmiers, in the Var department. Previously privately owned, it now belongs to the state, whose objective is to preserve the richness of the site.

Porquerolles is part of the Port-Cros National Park. One of the eleven national centres for the protection of nature and biodiversity in France. It is a real natural setting in the middle of the Mediterranean, with its fine sandy beaches and turquoise water. Its main activities are hiking, cycling, diving and visiting its heavenly beaches.

A variety of activities

Vehicles are not allowed on the island. So the best ways to get around are by walking or cycling. There are more than 54km of cycle tracks dotted around Porquerolles.

Discover the island’s heritage by exploring the island’s historic lighthouse dating from the 24th century and be sure to stop at one of the many remains of forts that illustrate its military past.

For nature lovers, take one of the 4 hiking trails that criss-cross the island and stop off at one of the many fine sandy beaches; the turquoise waters and the wild surrounding nature should delight you.
