Connue pour être l'une des plus petites communes de France (257 électeurs) et la plus méridionale des Iles du Ponant, l'Ile d'Aix présente la forme d'un croissant de verdure et de sable au relief peu accentué, qui s'étend sur 130 hectares bordés de plages, de criques et de rochers. Trois kilomètres de long, 600 mètres de large dans sa partie centrale que recouvre parfois les grandes marées...

Aix est une petite île profitant d'un climat méditerranéen et d'une circulation automobile quasiment nulle. Elle bénéficie de nombreux sites adaptés à l'enseignement de la voile, notamment l'Anse du Saillant au SE de l'île souvent abritée du vent ou le tour du Fort Boyard pour les plus confirmés.
