Porquerolles is a natural paradise with two faces: in the southern part the coast is steep with high and picturesque cliffs while in the northern part there is a Caribbean atmosphere with white sand beaches and turquoise water.
An idea for your sailing holiday? Hyères and Porquerolles: sail in full relaxation and explore these island and its treasures. Did you know that in 1912 François Joseph Fournier, a Belgian entrepreneur, bought it as a wedding present for his wife? Later he planted 500 acres of vineyards and produced one of the very first wines of the entire region of Provence, the famous ”vin des Côtes de Provence”.
Hyères islands are natural heavens where beaches meet plants of tamarisk, eucalyptus and pine that spread their mediterranean perfume in the whole bays. Sailing holidays? Port Cros and Porquerolles: two ideal destinations for those who want to discover magical vegetation and sea life. Here the diving centres organize different excursions everyday and, if you want to admire the seabed without swimming, you can join a trip on a glass-bottom boat.
