The creeks of Niolon and La Vesse
On the Côte Bleue, north-west of Marseille, there are several creeks sheltered from the winds. Among the most picturesque, the Calanque de Niolon and its small fishing port is particularly famous for its clear waters. The nearby calanque de la Vesse offers a postcard-like setting, with its viaduct cutting into the blue sky. You can put your towel on the beach of the Pointe de Figuerolles, which offers a breathtaking view of Marseille.
