Port-Cros is an island belonging to the French group of islands called the Îles d'Hyères. Lying in the vast Mediterranean, the island was donated to the French government when they promised that in exchange a National Park would be built on it. National Park of Port-Cros was established in 1963, and is a renowned wildlife sanctuary today. The island itself is about 4 km (2.5 mi) wide, with an overall area of about 650 ha (over 1600 ac). Formerly, the island belonged to the Greeks, and it is a very scenic location, making it a great tourist attraction.

To circumnavigate kayaking (motor transport cannot get closer and out of this we have so much to learn from the French), and to explore internally walk (very few cars are of the residents).
