Mediterranean Jewels

Together, the three islands are called the Golden Isles: an appropriate nickname for these islands whose natural beauty still allows each one to retain its own character.


3 islands, 2 departure points. To go to Porquerolles, boats depart from the Tour Fondue (located at the end of the Giens Peninsula). To reach Port-Cros and le Levant, take one of the boat shuttles leaving from the Saint-Pierre marina

Island hopping

The islands fit all sizes and ideas of a holiday: will you prefer lounging on the white-sand beaches of Porquerolles and take your family on long bike rides finishing the day off with a delicious ice-cream on the village square? Or, rather, will you opt for a wilder adventure, exploring the protected island of Port-Cros, its numerous hiking paths and surprising underwater fauna? Unless you prefer to make a stop on the third island of Le Levant, visiting its naturist village and the natural reserve of les Arbousiers (arbutus trees)…


These are your islands

Thanks to the tireless work of the Port-Cros National Park (founded in 1963) and of its collaborators, the islands have maintained their natural beauty for you to enjoy. It is also your responsibility to care for the islands by respecting nature.
