The Ile du Levant is a Mediterranean island situated off the coast of the town of Le Lavandou on the French Riviera. It is one of the three islands (the other two being Port-Cros and Porquerolles) that constitute the Iles d’Or (or Iles d’Hyères).
In 1931 two doctors, Gaston and André Durville, created on the island the first naturist community in Europe (Héliopolis). Their
objective was to offer to the inhabitants an exceptional environment where they could revitalise themselves away from the stress of the mainland: year-round sunshine; inlets and sandy beaches;
turquoise and clear sea; no private cars and public lighting, walks in the nature reserve.
The naturism is practicable everywhere, obligatory on all the places of swimming, prohibited on the harbor and the administrative buildings. To you baths of sun, light, sea, pure air and silence..
The island is also a real paradise for scuba divers.
You can dive in the National Park of Port-Cros which is rated
as one of the “Top 40” most beautiful diving spots in the world! Grouper,
barracuda, conger and moray eels are among
the species that you will be able to see.
