La Porquerollos is an island off of the city of Hyères in the French Riviera. The island gem is 4 miles long, less than 2 miles wide and simply charming. Although I’ve been to Marseille, this was my first visit to the French Riviera and we were told that La Porquerollos was not to be missed.

About a 10 minute boat ride from Hyères, I was surprised by how much la Porquerolles resembled a Caribbean island.
Since driving is heavily restricted on the island, I wanted to be comfortable because our commute would have to be by foot or bike.
Off the shoulder top sales has been booming with this season and I don’t see it backing down anytime soon. I paired the ensemble with these cognac Steve Madden flats as travel and comfort go hand in hand.
Love the frilly details and key hole entry on the this off the shoulder top too!
While walking around La Porquerolles there were a few street stands like this one.
It was the perfect opportunity to cool off with some gelato.
I couldn’t decide which flavor to get so….
Gelato is a must if you’re visiting France.
A helping of cool gelato and then a visit to more one of several bike stands for a bike ride to the beach.
Apparently, I need to go bike riding more often because a few dusty small hills were enough to slow me down more than once.
The view was totally worth the effort and the snake that I saw slithering by while on the ride. EEK!
After the ride, a leisurely walk in the small town revealed local and tourist alike gathered to listen to school children sing.
What a short and sweet day trip that was to Porquerolles. Despite extremist efforts to thwart travel, “We travel not to escape life but so that life doesn’t escape us”.
