Another island in the Îles d’Hyères is Porquerolles, located close to Port-Cros. This island is another picturesque escape surrounded by robust cliffs and tranquil beaches. There are more options for accommodation on this island, which makes it much more accessible but just as scenic. During high season, the island is a respite to over 8000 visitors. Travel is similar to Port-Cros as you need to take a ferry or boat ride to get to the island. Once you arrive, a large handful of delicious restaurants and cute houses welcome you.

The beauty of the island is having a choice between travelling by land or sea. Whether you’re exploring by foot, bike, or even boat, exploring the national park and island is a truly special experience in itself. I happily took on as many boat rides as possible, soaking in the sun and salty air. Besides hiking the coast and vineyards, snorkeling, sailing, and diving are all great ways to spend the day.
