For those who prefer to be away from it all, Péreybère also has several deserted beautiful beaches and delightful little coves.

With its good transport links, Péreybère is also a convenient departure point for daily excursions to anywhere on the island, whether by boat, hired car, hired scooter, bus or taxi. Any part of the island can be reached in less than 2 hours drive.
