Ile des Embiez
Located offshore from Six-Fours-les-Plages (1 km) and adjacent to Toulon, “Ile des Embiez” actually comprises two islands connected by silt and alluvial deposits: Tour Fondue to the north-east and Ile Saint-Pierre.
Port Saint-Pierre is easy to reach from the port of Le Brusc (42 km from the campsite) on the daily boat buses (12-minute ride).
The Embiez archipelago is now internationally renowned thanks to Paul Ricard, who purchased the site and created a major Oceanographic Institute there in 1966.
Also referred to as “Flower Island”, Ile des Embiez is a little Coin de Paradis® (Corner of Paradise) on Earth. You will love exploring its peaceful little coves on foot, by bike or on the tourist train – what’s more, the island is car-free!
Ile des Embiez offers something for every taste while you’re holidaying in the Var area, South of France, Provence-Mediterranean. Enjoy trying your hand at scuba diving, sea kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding. The island is even home to a well-being centre.
The Oceanographic Institute features an aquarium where you can admire around 100 Mediterranean marine plant and animal species.
Ile des Embiez is home to an astonishing 90% of the Mediterranean’s indigenous plants and animals. Wild and beautiful, with its discreet coves, pine wood, sweet-scented garrigue, reefs and flowers, it is also planted with around 25 acres of vines.
And on your return to Camping de La Pascalinette®, simply take a dip in the water park pools to cool down after your gorgeous day out!
