  • This is to reserve those - those who spend several days in Marseille. Without a car to change 2 times bus otherwise owl (3 h) walk to the departure of David. Several breweries on the path and excellent restaurant typical.

  • They are located at the end of Marseille so a little more protected world but always met the summer as all beaches in Marseille. To avoid when there are too many people because ps nice. The water is clear and pure

  • very pretty sandy beach bordered by breweries and nautical schools: little piece of Mediterranean sun umbrella and sails: a good show! the beach is cleaned every morning, the wake of the machine is visible! the sand turns slowly while the sun rises to illuminate the breweries who are waking up... I love! the day in high season, it's black world! Yes it's scary at first glance, and I hate the proximity in general. but this beach is my exception when I can't find the courage to go in the creeks. popular? YES and what a treat! Perhaps the only corner of Marseille where there is still a "living together"... a "how to live together"! I took a friend this summer that was very reluctant! He asked a positive balance on this day! people are paying attention, they make sure to respect and monitor the children. in the water we're sorry... splash etc while there is a panel of people... There is life, culture, respect and sharing! a moment where people are not afraid each other! the beach is supervised. the nude beach is a paradise!
