Alpes Mediterranée Provence

Port Cros National Park

The Port Cros National Park is the first marine park in Europe. It extends over 700 hectares of dry land and 1 300 hectares underwater. On the islands of Port-Cros and Porquerolles, visitors will discover contrasts in nature; steep cliffs and narrow valleys traversed with green oaks.

Botany lovers will be in their element with the lavender on the islands, the flax-leaved broom, the floral rock rose, the tree heath…Bird lovers will not be disappointed; There are approximately 175 recorded species on the island! Equally, those interested in the seabed will discover a sea life rich with moray eels, conger eels, octopuses. A world to admire… but also to respect.
