This is a little cove about 1 KM from the center of Marseille. It includes several restaurants and is very picturesque. To get here, you can take several different buses from the center of Marseille.

It is not so much to do in the area but some nice restaurants and bakeries for a fresh morning bread. We rented an apartment up on the hill with wonderful view over the Mediterranean and the pittoresk harbor!

Any time of the day, this little creek is worth a visit. It's always different. There are buses that stop there. No excuse not to pause for a moment or 2.

One of the sights to visit in Marseille that are worthy. Overall I liked Marseille because of the beautiful sea views. Apart from this I would not recommend spending than half a day there. The views from the Cathedral are nice. The palais du Pharo...More

Nothing special to see, a small bay and nothing much to do there. Even the beaches does not seem very compelling
