Nice and relaxing place for pic-nic, walking, and view on Avignon (bridge, Palais des Papes, etc.) To take a walk beside Rhône river.

Go over the bridge from the palace and see the best view of Avignon. There is a cage there for a coffee but it is very beautiful and a unique place to take photos.

We cycled the longest tour, just 16km but several of these kilometers were over very rough tracks. You do not see much of the river while riding but it is a nice pleasant way to spend an hour or so.

We walked and cycled around this island from our campsite that was also situated on the island. It is flat and when you get away from the bridge crossing area it is very quiet and rural, many farms and orchards on the island.

The best place to cycling from Avignon down town. Across the bridge, and riding around the island in the weekend morning is the best way to release your stress and tiredness.

If you’re staying in Avignon it’s worth paying a visit to this river island, either by the free ferry boat that leaves at regular intervals or by walking across the bridge. Although there’s not a lot to see on the island, it’s a very pleasant...More

Found the island a little disappointing - if you're going for walking which we did. Mainly roads with no footpaths. Between the ferry terminal and bridge is better as can promenade the short distance along the water front, but don't make the mistake of trying...More

We got the free ferry across the river. We loved the trip. We then had a picnic on the river banks before walking back over the bridge. Highly recommend this. Fantastic views.
