A region rich in islands and islets
The Southern Region of France has ninety-two islands and islets, five of which are artificially connected to the mainland or a larger island. These islands are distributed along the coast of Provence and the Côte d'Azur (French Riviera) according to a longitudinal gradient from the small islets of the Côte Bleue, west of Marseille, to the islet of Isoletta today connected to the mainland at Eze-sur-Mer in the Alpes-Maritimes department. The Hyères archipelago (photo) is located south of the 43° parallel at the same latitude as Cap Corse.
