Of the few beaches we visited, we preferred this one. At the top on the street there is a small (paid) car park, as well as (paid) parking on the street itself. Reach the bay (Calanque) by way of steps straight from the car park....More

This is a great place to visit and enjoy the sea and specific rocks. It can get really crowded during the July-August, thus destroying the experience. Best is to go there on April-June and September-October. Climbing some rocks on the heights can give you unique...More

But you might want to bring some water shoes...the 'beach' is just stones and rocks. Otherwise a gorgeous little Calanque.

You need to be pretty fit, as it is a steep climb back. The water was very cold, but clear and beautiful, probably as the summer progresses it will get a lot warmer. It's a very picturesque bay, surrounded by steep cliffs, with a little...More
