One day stay Beach Stay

Hi

We have a one day cruise stop and will be pretty done with sightseeing etc. Really fancy a beach day - nothing specially just a laze on the beach and a dip of the toes in the sea with maybe a spot of lunch in a cafe. Not too much of a journey from the cruise ports.

I know Marseille isnt renown for its beaches - but anyone out there with any suggestions ?

thanks

Fig

You could try some of my favourites on the Cote Bleue, west of Marseille: Carry le Rouet, Sausset les Pins and La Couronne, about 20 - 35 km south-west of the airport.

There is some good info here:

I've only been to Prado, which I enjoyed. Marseilles is lovely, but if you have the time, I suggest catching a bus to Cassis and spending the day there.

I think this might help answer your question - The beaches of Marseille.

The Prado plage is not listed, but it does review some of the alternatives
