Great place! You can easily go by walking from the gate, enjoying a cool trekking with an amazing view, or even, get to very closest parking area. Worth a lot!

We arrived around lunch time in October. By then, the sun was starting to go behind the hills and things started to get colder. So best to go in the morning. Also, be aware that the walk is not easy. At least a reasonable level...More

It's true that you won't have the place to yourself and that it is difficult to get to, but sea kayaking to En Vau was one of the highlights of our trip to southern France. It was even more beautiful than the pictures. The beach...More
