Porquerolles is the largest of the Hyères Islands found in the Mediterranean Sea. Much of the island is a protected natural park where building houses is prohibited. You can't bring your car, either. Visitors must arrive by a boat which leaves every half hour in the high season from the coast of Hyères. You can rent a bike for the day or explore the island on foot, heading down the various dirt roads which lead to different beaches. The island also has several restaurants for every budget, from pan bagnats or pizza to restaurants serving fresh fish like the chic Mas du Langoustier at the end of the island where dinner can reach upwards of 75euros a person.
