Bendor is a tiny island, in private ownership. The French magnate Paul Ricard (owner of the famous pastis brand with the same name) bought the island in 1950, and turned it into a protected nature reserve, as well as a haven for artists.
Ricard also bought the island called Îles des Embiez, and together they are also knowns as the Islands of Paul Ricard.
Bendor is a 7 minute ferry trip away from the beautiful Provençal town of Bandol. Tickets can be bought here. For more information go to les Iles Paul Ricard
