Photographer's Note

This sight shows us the aspect most representative of the rocks which border the extreme coast of the Peninsula of Giens. Indeed “Presqu'île de Giens”, in the South of Hyères, consists of primary rock hills which, geologically, form part of crystalline Provence.
Contrary to the rocks of edges of sea which we saw on TE, little time ago, for example the photographs of Sophie, Fred or Vincent, with rocks to the round forms because of marine erosion, one notices on this sight that on the peninsula these rocks have a shredded aspect due of the presence of the quarzites which were formed several million years ago. Moreover the presence of iron in the rocks gives them a reddish colour which is rather characteristic of some Mediterranean coastal massifs.
Thus all the rock littoral constitutes an extraordinary unit, as well by the beauty as by the originality of its marine landscapes.
