In addition to its splendid natural setting, where the landscapes take you from fine sandy beaches to impressive and magnificent cliffs, it is described as a magical island, “the largest and most western of the three golden islands of Hyères”, just a few kilometres from the Giens peninsula.
A wild but romantic setting”.
The panorama is exceptional: lagoon-blue waters, the famous Argent beach, Notre-Dame beach. The latter is the largest and most remote beach on the island. Godard chose this paradisiacal setting for the shooting of his film Pierrot le fou with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina. The hero’s cabin, or at least what remains of it after so many years, is still visible at the end of the beach.

” The island and its 12 km² of wild vegetation are protected by the Port-Cros National Park. When the Carmignac foundation settled there, it was necessary to respect the environment. Blending into the landscape, the museum has taken up residence underground. It hosts a photojournalism exhibition on the destruction of the planet: deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon, melting ice in the Arctic… Projections in the heart of Porquerolles To raise awareness of the ecological crisis, Porquerolles makes its cinema. One day a week, throughout the summer, a film on the environment is screened in the heart of the island. The next film to be screened will be Win Wenders’ Salt of the Earth, about the expedition of the Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado, who immortalised grandiose landscapes and endangered animal species”.
