  • Really nice island in Marseille!!! I think you’d better enjoying your time in this island not goint to ‘IF’ island. Just take the ship and take your swim suit. Enjoy your time in the ocean and just watching the ocean is also cool! But you have to walk for about 20 minutes to Ocean:(
  • Interesting and historical place to visit... the beautiful limestone cliffs meeting in the sea.....
  • very nice place to visit all the monuments and small beaches. Flamenco, restaurants and the Mediterranean sun set view is splendid !
  • Very nice place, a lot of historic monuments from World War can be seen, there are some beaches to have a swim around. overall a very friendly and adventurous experience
  • Main beach, Plage de Saint-Estève, is a fair walk from the harbour (20mins) but worth it. It's in a lovely cove and shallow for quite far out. Both sand and rocks for the kids to play on. Also lots of smaller more secluded coves around the island but need to go off the main road for these.
