Calanque du Mugel

La Ciotat - Beach

"Plage de la calanque du Mugel" is a heavenly spot bordering translucent, turquoise waters. The site actually comprises two shingle beaches - one small and one large - both overlooking the surprising bay of La Ciotat, Bec de l'Aigle mountain and the nearby Ile Verte island.
This is an ideal place for all types of leisure activity: swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding or - if the weather is too hot - strolling in the park located just above.
The fjord and its park are sheltered from the Mistral wind by Bec de l'Aigle mountain. Thanks to its microclimate, the site is also home to a fascinating variety of tropical plants and animals, such as cacti, bamboos and birds of paradise.
