Our opinion on the Portet Cove

Adresse of the Portet Cove : Allée Portet 06400 Iles de Lérins - Ste Marguerite

The cove du Portet on the island of Sainte-Marguerite is situated after the forest house and the private property, about 20 meters after the allee du Portet. This little-known cove is in our estimation one of the most beautiful of the island of Sainte-Marguerite. Surrounded by flat rock formations, the beach is composed of small pebblestones. The rock formations on the sides amuse children. Yet, one must arrive very early in the morning to reserve it.

Before this cove, we find some flat rock formations.

To arrive at this cove from the unloading stage, the shortest way is to take the chemin des Eucalyptus which allows you to rejoin the forest house. Then you'll take the allee du Centre on the left followed by the allee du Portet which allows you to rejoin the shore. Approximately 20 minutes by foot.

Just before crossing the allee du Portet when coming from the pointe du Dragon, we find some flat rock formations where one can lay down.

Natural pool - Portet cove - Lerins island

On the right part, near the rock formations, we find a kind of natural pool (in which we cannot swim...). Rather unusual. Facing this, we have the northeast point of the island of St. Honorat.
