Iles des Embiez, Six-Fours-les-Plages
(4.4/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Only 12 minutes away by ferry from the port of Le Brusc, the tiny Iles des Embiez is often called a little piece of paradise. Six km (3.7 mi) of coastline wrap around the .9 sq km (.35 sq mi) island, striped with several wild creeks where you can swim in crystal clear water. Divers especially can enjoy the sea depths, while others can sunbathe on the beaches, play tennis, visit the museum-aquarium, hike in the forest, or wander through a vineyard. The island, which has strict environmental protections, features a couple of hotels and a handful of restaurants.

  • We have done on foot (2 quiet hours) around this island. all along we were able to appreciate and admire the landscapes that surround it as well as these beautiful colors of blue of the sea in the beaches. A nice day to do same family. Tip: off-season take a picnic because there is very little open restaurant and the shop is closed on Monday!

  • A quarter of an hour by boat from the Brusc, the Embiez Islands are a little piece of paradise without a car (except deliveries and electric vehicles of people who work). As soon as we put the feet on the island, it is the change of scenery. Lots of small coves where her towel to go swimming. However, very crowded in summer.

  • After you have paid the price of the really excessive ticket for the crossing, you go to a beautiful place. The scenery is sumptuous, few people off season and therefore really quiet moments on the small beaches. The island tour takes about 2 hours to walk.
