Giens Things to Do
The Fort de la Tour Fondue stands on top of a rock, at the southernmost tip of the Presqu'île de Gien. It was built in 1634 and modified in the XVIIth and XIXth. It was designed for a series of canon that covered the access to Hyères from the Grand Ribaud pass. It is not owned by the army anymore and there is a project to used it as a museum about the local marine life.Related to:

Tour Fondue harbor is the terminal for the ferries. In high season, there is at least a ferry to Porquerolles every half an hour. Some of them make the round trip Tour Fondue, Porquerolles, Port-Cros, Levant, Tour Fondue (only in high season)
In low season, there are far less connections and no connection for Port-Cros, Levant from la Tour Fondue.
All year round, the direct ferries to Port-Cros and Levant island depart from the harbor of Hyères.
