Ile de Porquerolles – A Hidden Paradise

One of my favourite places on the French Riviera is the lesser known Ile de Porquerolles where the crystal clear waters, golden sand and dream-like bays are more akin to somewhere found in the tropics.  This sensational paradise is the antidote to the hustle and bustle of St Tropez – a tranquil haven in which to relax and unwind whilst enjoying the stunning scenery. Together with the island of Port-Cros and île du Levant, Porquerolles belongs to the îles d’Hyères Archipelago, also knows as the îles d’or (Golden Islands). The biggest of the three islands of the archipelago, Porquerolles is shaped like a croissant and is seven kilometers long by three kilometers wide.
