A perfect day.

From ‘le vieux port’ the return boat ticket was 11 Euros. It takes about 20 mins to get across.

There are paths along the ireland that you can easily walk. The view of Marseille is stunning. Once you are tired walking and cannot absorb more beautiful seacost landscape, there are a few beaches where you can swim, sunbath, read your book. There is a water point on the beach.

The Caroline hospital is a 19th century ruin which is being renovated. Depending on the building site status, you might be able to walk around and see how it is being built.

Should you need the comfort of civilisation, there are some restaurants. Close to the harbour.

You can stay till 22:00. You will be in no rush to go back to mainland. On the way back, you will see the sun lighting up Marseille. A sight to see.

Well worth the 20 minute navette from Vieux Port Marseille. We enjoyed both the Calanque de Morgiret and Plage de St Esteve for swimming. And then grilled fresh sardines and battered calamari lunch at Le Phocea on the Quai D'Honneur.

Had a wonderful afternoon visit exploring these islands. You can purchase a ticket that allows you to get off at the Chateau d'If, and then get back on the boat and to the rest of the Iles du Frioul. Boats depart from the old port in Marseille. Short trip, perhaps 20 minutes or so to get there. Great views of Marseille and the surroundings from these islands. Well worth a visit.

We had a gorgeous day to spend on the island, which we reached by a crowded ferry. We'd neglected to bring a lunch with us, so we ended up eating an early dinner at one of the tourist traps(restaurants) that face the dock. Specifically, we went to the one serving various incarnations of paella. The pictures were totally misleading, as we should have figured by the empty tables, but we thought it was empty because it was still early evening. We each had a different version of paella. Mine was made with "squid ink," which darkened the sauce nearly black in color. While this was not unexpected, the lack of seafood was disappointing, to say the least. I don't remember the name of the place, but it specializes in paella - don't patronize them unless you want to pay way too much for substandard food.

the Frioul Archipelago is made up of the islands of Ratonneau, gues, If and Tiboulen. For the island of If and its castle, see the specific entry here on Tripadvisor. The two islands Ratonneau and Pomegues are linked to eachother by an artifical. Both islands are part of the National Parc Calanques, and offer wonderful views, old fortresses, great nature and birdlife, but also opportunities for a swim and some nice restaurants. We spent a wonderful day here, escaping the city rush, and enjoying sun, sea and nature.

We spent here about 4 hours: a walk of 2-2.5 hours on the very nice beach (so called calaques - narrow bays, an hour in cafe with unforgetable view an a "carafe" of rose wine, nice marina... High recommended

Nice place to be, however it’s even more touristic than Marseille itself. You can go around with a touristict train, but don’t expect to much of it. The trip is really very short! Not worth the money you have to pay. In fact getting there by boat was even more exciting than being there. Anywhere, you have to go there when staying in Marseille.

The Frioul islands are a great getaway from Marseille--you feel very far away from the city when you're there since there are no cars, and you have a direct access to the sea. Go early, buy tickets online and bring a pic-nic lunch. Stay for the day to relax, swim and enjoy.

Take the boat from the old port tickets cost Euro 11. The boat ride takes 20 mins and the island itself is small and barren with nice views to Marseille. The chateau d’if which is a stop before frioul is closed until the end of March

We took the ferry ride to Frioul and spent half a day swimming in an amazing inlet or 'Calanque'. It was picture perfect with turquoise clear water, ideal for safe swimming and snorkelling. Just remember flip flops as the beach is stony. Take a right out off the ferry and walk five mins before taking a left to the Calanque de Moriget. No facilities great walks and views above the beach and plenty of snacks and food back at the small port/town. Already a great day out away from the hustle and bustle of Marseille.
