The little coastal tour

HYèRES

Description

This 2.5 hour tour is for little ones aged 5 and over with their families to meet the coast's animals, wildlife and unique seaside flora. Mini explorers are given a map with five hiding places to find. They're given a compass, net and bucket. Every hiding place they find has natural treasures to see together!

The 3km loop with incredible views takes the little troop from La Madrague Port to the Ermitage tip and Calanque du Four à Chaux before going back.

Learn all kinds of facts about marine life in the rocks including the super-cute sea sheep and the bizarre sea cucumber; we'll also discuss anemones, starfish, urchins, the amazing hermit crab and the essential role of banks of posidonia, a sea plant that acts as the Mediterranean's lungs and forms an incredible treasure to protect. A fun-filled educational trip for little ones... and grown-ups!
