Walk in island over a bridge from Le Brusc with minimal but sufficient facilities, take your own provisions, a rocky outcrop away from the nearby city life for relaxing, swimming with care. Plenty of parking around Le Brusc and the bus visits the entrance, there...More

This is a very idyllic place to visit. Authentic with a lot of privacy. Choose a spot on the rocks if you want to swim or sunbathe near the water, or put your hamac in the trees.

Although the island is well accommodated (benches, picnic tables, wc), the walk on the rocks battered with the waves gives a savage sensation in windy conditions. Prepare some coin changes for the parking only accept those. And in summer you'll have to park far outside...More

This island falls under the natura2000 project meaning it's managed by the local council and public. no cars or bikes allowed, very quiet with lots of swimming opportunities and beautiful views.

The Ile du Gaou is situated at the end of the Six-Fours-Les-Plage peninsula and is worth a visit, for sure. It is accessible via a foot-bridge and is full of little coves, small sandy beaches and beautifully clear water. The cicadas were in full throttle...More

Very nice place for a little stroll. People gather there with friends and families for a pique-nique or just go to the beach.

Easy to get to from Six Fours centre - in fact you could walk there in 20 - 25 mins along the seafront and save yourself the parking charges ( though its not that expensive). I'd say allow a couple of hours for a gentle...More
