Crique à Porquerolles

Porquerolles

The island of Porquerolles is the largest and most western of the islands of Hyères in the Var department and the Provence-Alpes-Côtes d'Azur region. With an area of 12.54 km2 it forms an arc facing east-west, with cut edges, 7.5 km long and 3 km wide. Its perimeter is about 30 kilometers. The island culminates at the semaphore at 142 m. It owes its conservation status to the fact that it is French State property since 1971 and enjoys the status of "National Park" since 2012.

Port-Cros

Port-Cros is one of the three islands of Hyères, coastal archipelago in the Mediterrenean Sea, off the bay of Hyères. 4.5 km long and 2 km wide, its highest point is at 199 m above sea level, summit of the archipelago. The presence of sources explains its rich vegetation.

In the early 1960s, its owner gave it to the State against the promise of making it a national park, a reserve of fauna and flora. The National Park of Port-Cros was created December 14,1963. This national, land and marine, park is the only one of which the State is almost entirely owner.
