Walking in the Mediterranean Island - Porquerolles

Swimming in the clear water of the Mediterranean Sea, sunbathing on the fine white sand, or walking under the shadow of the maritime pines... The Porquerolles Island has 2 radically different coasts: a jagged coastline in the south with impressive cliffs mixing with the deep blue; and in the north facing the mainland, a much softer coastline with a series of sandy beaches including the Notre-Dame Beach which was nominated the most beautiful beach of Europe in 2015. Porquerolles and Port-Cros, the heavenly Golden Islands in the South of France are a must-visit destination by their unique identity!
