A gorgeous place to rest, swim, tan and picnic during the summer, one hour by car from Nice (France).
Somewhere, in the wonderful part of the world named South of France, is a tiny island called the island of gold. It is a private island situated east of Saint-Raphaël, not far from the tiny city Boulouris. This island was sold in 1867 by the Frencg government for 280 francs to a certain Monsieur Sergent. He lost it after eat if a succulent bouillabaisse followed by a card game. The new owner built a tower on the isle, us if the stones of the Esterel ranges. Then, he proclaimed himself king of the island, and organized a sumptuous reception in 1913!
Many french are familiar with this tiny island because it has been depicted in an episode of the famous comic book Tintin.(The black island).
To resume: it’s a wonderful spot to go to : you can stay on the beach and swim, tan, picnic for the day with this gorgeous view, or make a walk under the pine trees all along the shore !
