How to get to the Île des Embiez

The Île des Embiez (Embiez Island) is located on the French Riviera, near the town of Six-Fours-les-Plages. This small paradise island (by European standards) is only accessible by boat from the charming little harbor of Le Brusc, a 12 min trip on calm waters. To help us organize the transfers, give us all your travel information in the registration form.

On the first day of the meeting (Sunday August 29), a bus transportation service (20 min ride) will be organized from the train station in Toulon, departing shortly after each arrival of the fast train from Paris. The boat will take you immediately to the island. The boat schedule is here

Useful links for train tickets:





The closest airport is Toulon/Hyères (a 40 min ride to Le Brusc) : https://www.toulon-hyeres.aeroport.fr/en. But the Marseilles airport, 80 min away by car, has many more flights. We are organizing organize a coach transfer from the Marseilles airport, for an additional fee. Remember you can also take a fast train from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport to Toulon (change in Marseilles or Lyon), to help save the planet.

Make sure you plan to arrive early enough to not miss the welcome party. The last boat will leave Le Brusc at 11:45 PM. Should you wish to come by car, you can park on the mainland in front of the departure dock (paying) or at 10 min walk (free).You can also board your car on the ferry (140 € return trip) and park on the island, but we don't recommend.
