Plage de la Pointe Rouge, Marseille

(2.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
One of Marseille's rare sandy beaches, Plage de la Pointe Rouge provides a perfect place to relax and soak up some sunshine on your vacation. You'll find plenty of amenities here to help you make the most of your visit, including a swimming pool, showers, and an upmarket marina.

An array of no-frills restaurants lines the beach front, serving up sandwiches, pizza, salads, and grilled meats. The fare may be basic, but the views are spectacular.

  • Single in the city, a true Beach lined with its small huts of fishermen, yes they are still there and summer fishermen are. Fine sand, clear sea, of the snowboarders, small sailboats... this place 10 minutes from the city centre is a haven of peace and pleasure.
