    To do absolutely, short enough but sufficient, 1 hour trip, 1 hour on site to be able to visit the island, 1 hour return trip. The swimming possible on site is not necessarily the most interesting given the beauty of the landscapes to be seen on the island In 1 hour, it is quite feasible to see the 2 buildings on the island while taking the time to do some photos with absolutely beautiful angles!

    Beautiful scenery and thoroughly enjoyed the time to walk on the Sanguinaires. However, whilst the tour is clearly promoted as guided in French, it also mentions booklets in at least two other languages. There were no booklets so if you don’t understand French, the only way to learn about the area is to research it yourself.

    Very beautiful bloodthirsty islands, unfortunately the stop is too short both for a swim and for a walk to the top. the duration of the activity is not three hours but two and a quarter. he drives only in French, which in a tourist place like this I don't understand, in English the departure time from the sanguinary is not even said ... no brochures are left in other languages. The cost seems excessive to me, however, the view and the visit to the islands are worth it.
