Plage de la calanque St Estève

To reach "Plage de la calanque St Estève", you first need to come to Marseille's Old Port (Vieux Port), where you can get the Frioul Express boat bus to the offshore islands. The 15-minute crossing takes you past Château d’If (of Count of Monte Cristo fame) and on to the pretty port of the Frioul archipelago, lined with restaurant terraces. If you head along the shore to the right you will come to this gorgeous natural fjord, with its half-sand, half-pebble beach. Leave the trouble and strife of city life behind you for a while and lay your towel down on the sand just like the many locals who come here every summer. Sheltered from the Mistral wind and attended by a lifeguard, St Estève beach offers a truly different holiday experience and the chance for parents to let their kids dabble in deliciously clear, warm and shallow waters.
