Fun for all sorts of curious fish

Visitors are particularly keen on Hyères’ large and varied offer of beaches. Easily accessible with children, the beaches of La Bergerie, la Badine and la Madrague have shallow waters: perfect for playing in the water. Similarly, in Porquerolles, the beaches Plage d’Argent, la Courtade and Notre-Dame are all family-friendly.

If your children are over 8 years old and like swimming, we offer a vast range of maritime hike itineraries, providing fascinating glimpses onto Hyères’ rich underwater world. Starting from Giens or Porquerolles, a guide will take your family on an encounter with local fish and submarine plants. The Olbia archaeological underwater trail also provides fascinating information on the Ancient origins of Hyères.

Many diving centres propose first dives to children older than 8. Whether you are a scuba-diving fan or are just starting out, this is a great way to share the fun with the whole family and teach your children about submarine life.


Steer course!

There are many other sea activities available to the whole family, from sailing classes, fishing outings aboard a picturesque tuna vessel or canoe adventures. Many centres also offer windsurfing, hobbie-cat and sailing dinghy (optimist) day camps. As for adults, there is a large selection of kite surfing or jet ski activities to choose from. Ask our nautical schools for more information.
