The island of Embiez belongs to the Ricard family, who fully conditioned it. You can get there from the port of Brusc by transporter, canoe or even by windsurfing. There are small coves, a wine museum, oceanographic centre with aquarium, and port on the island. There are salt marshes, vineyards and numerous palm trees as well. For hikers, there's an old tower on top of a small hill that you can climb to. There's also sailing at the sailing club, or catamaran sailing. The island also has many bars and restaurants scattered around the harbour and a hotel area if you want to stay a little longer in paradise.
Gaou peninsula is at the edge of the coast road that leaves the port of Brusc. It is a public park that is open daily from 8 am to 8 pm. It is protected. The wild spaces in the pine alternating blue water coves, make it a great attraction. The place is even more captivating for the sunrise, or the sunset. There are long trails and paths for jogging enthusiasts. At the entrance of the park there are many typical fishing boats with nets spread in the sun, and some gulls that fly on the hunt for fish. In some zones of the island there is no bathing, to protect the marine flora, but in others it is authorized. If the clear blue water and still has not given you reason to come, I highly recommend it.
