Activities

Porquerolles’ northern coast is laced with beautiful sandy beaches. Cliffs line the island’s more dangerous southern coast, where swimming and diving are restricted to Calanque du Brégançonnet to the east and Calanque de l’Oustaou de Diou to the west. Get maps at the tourist office.

The tourist office map also has four cycling itineraries, from 6.5km to 13.8km long. More detail is included in a cyclo-guide (€6) in French, available at the Maison du Parc. Bike-hire outfits line the port and place d'Armes.

Porquerolles’ vineyards cover a square kilometre of the western part of the island, and are tended by three wine producers. Each offers dégustation (tasting) sessions of their predominantly rosé wines.
