Iles des Embiez, Six-Fours-les-Plages

(4.4/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • the island is great for the beach, walking, diving, fishing, clean air, the picnic is accepted, must be respected. But the ideal is to lunch in a restaurant unless of course you are alone or alone to pay the Bill for children 5. When l "Ricard Museum aquarium is open go"

  • Small beaches, coves, the Sun, a nice little courses to half by around the island, stopping to take pictures and enjoy the Sun even in the month of February. 'Advantage in this season is that' there is little world. However a pheasant, a flament rose!

  • During the summer, the island is very busy, I would advise to discover in average or low season. The port is one of the nuggets of this site. A small train makes you do the tour of the island without fatigue, after a small or long walk according to your desires, you can find natural coves with transparent water that invites to swimming. The last Sunday of June has always held the feria of the Embiez with its flamenco shows, abrivados with bulls, horses, horse shows of high quality in the arenas of the island and all of this with background music of Peñas.. .in the joy and good mood! Only downside: the journey by boat and back is still quite expensive...
