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. Port-Cros National Park 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.

    Port Cros even in high season, even a 15 August is a real pleasure! The ideal is to get there in fine pm, by shuttle or by your own boat to spend a night, make the hike around the island the next day, avoid the plagettes crowded in season and lunch on the port...
