Not so long ago, we wrote an article about sea excursions… What better way on holiday than to take a boat trip around the islands ? I know, being a blogger is so difficult. I “had to ” try this seatrip in a brand new boat which take you to Port cros and Porquerolles islands the same day.

[ happy mode ; activated ! ]

For this new activity (available right now) you are boarding “ la mouette “ ( the seagull in english) for a very fun trip around the islands. I won’t give you all the details because depending on the weather the itinerary can change but they usually do this :

We leave from the port of Hyeres and take direction Port cros and Le levant. After an hour, we arrive in the bay of Port Man. From there, we can see the village of Heliopolis in front of us.

“La Mouette” ship in Port-Cros

Very sheltered from an east wind, we circumvent the national park island and pass by the very famous diving spot : “ la gabiniere”. Beautiful pictures are taken when we arrive close to port creux ( in english “hollow” where the island’s name comes from) The first break approaches. It’s time to take “ l’apero “ and a well-earned meal. The mouette berths in a lovely bay. Let’s meet again in two hours. 

Port-Cros, a magical encounter

La vue du port, depuis le fort du Moulin

2pm, I’m sad to leave this beautiful place. off season the vibe is completely different. We now go to Porquerolles, the most popular of the golden islands. Cape to 43°/6°. Stéphane, Gaspard and our captains of the day take time to explain its particularities…. The cap of the Medes, its history, and of course the beaches!

Les amarres sont fixées. Place à la pause déjeuner.

On our way to Porquerolles

Porquerolles port is calling us! It’s another island, another atmosphere: Farniente, ice cream, beach life and more… I got carried away … Anyway, this is Porquerolles and it’s just for you for 2 hours. Time flies when you have a good time! The boat drops people on the quai. Porquerolles, here we are !
