A dynamic conglomeration, a major economic hub with Marseille-Provence Airport, the town of Marignane is also a tourist destination in the heart of the Bouches-du-Rhône. With the Etang de Berre and the Etang de Bolmon, the town has become a seaside resort thanks to its beaches appreciated for their calm. You are also close to the beaches, creeks and creeks of the Côte Bleue, where many water sports activities await you: sea walks, flyboarding, jet-skiing, scuba diving, excursions to the islands of Frioul?

Marignane can also impose itself as a nature destination, halfway between the wilderness of the Camargue, the fairytale coastline of the Calanques National Park and the slopes carpeted with pine forests and the scrublands of the Sainte-Victoire, so dear to Paul Cézanne. Lovers of hiking, mountain biking and climbing will find in Provence a playground to match their desires.

On the cultural side, the Raimu Museum and the Covet Castle, which today houses the Town Hall behind its Italian-style façade, underline the architectural quality of the town of Marignane. You are also just a few kilometers from Marseille, whose cultural offer is renowned throughout the world with establishments such as the MuCEM or the Cantini Museum, and the city of Aix-en-Provence, which notably hosts the Granet museum and a world-famous Festival of Lyric Art.

Marseille and Aix-en-Provence

Marignane is also not far from the cities of Aix-en-Provence and Marseille, which host an incredibly rich cultural and tourist offer.

The beaches of the Berre pond

Marignane is located on the edge of the Etang de Berre, which has several beaches suitable for swimming and water sports. The seaside resorts of the Côte Bleue also await you nearby. The seaside resort of Carry-le-Rouet, for example, is only 10 kilometers away.
