There are no cars in Port-Cros…not even a bike to disturb the insular calm. The wildest and best preserved of the Golden Isles is made for hiking. Be Robinson Crusoe for a day and set upon the island’s marked trails, losing yourself among the arbutus and cistus trees, accompanied on your adventure by the cicadas’ song. Three trails running along the coast and inland will take you on a discovery hike amidst Port-Cros’ natural and cultural wonders. (Maps are on sale at the Maison du Parc. More information: www.portcrosparcnational.fr)
Some sections of the trails are quite steep. We recommend wearing good hiking shoes and bringing plenty of water. The paths are not suitable to pushchairs.
By the shore
Flippers, diving goggles and a snorkel are all you need to set upon the underwater Palud trail on an expedition through the protected seascape of Port-Cros.
For those eager to dive deeper and come face to face with the magnificent flora and fauna populating the waters of Port-Cros, diving expeditions are regularly organised. There exists a dryer option to access this incredible diversity: by boarding an aquascope – a boat with a glass-panelled hull!
