As it’s far from the village, it’s the less frequented beach. This beach will thrill you with its turquoise blue and clear water. Protected from east wind.
L’anse de la Galère (la Galère cove)
At the other side of the island this cove is a wild place not as much frequented by the tourist as its name points it out, it is pain to access this cove on foot or by bike. There is not a beautiful beach, but a natural and beautiful place. Protected from west wind.
PIECE OF ADVICE
By West wind or strong North West wind, la Badine – on the peninsula of Giens – is an excellent well-protected anchorage.
Around Port Cros
Watch out you have now entered in a national marine park and here you must respect the nature. You can’t throw your anchor wherever you want. Whether it be around Port Cros, the small island of Bagaud, Rascas or the Gabinière, the anchorage is strictly controlled. This place gathers an important number of sea and earth species, you will have access to a submarine path during the summer in the Palud beach. No anchorage possible, you will have just a little pontoon to greet small boats. This place is accessible on foot at 45 minutes from the village. If you like snorkelling you will swim among the fish, observe a huge number of marine species and submerge in a crystal water to the Rascas rock.
