If you’re visiting Marseille, don’t miss Les Goudes!
A day off, filled with wanderlust… Grab your sunglasses, a pair of sneakers and head for Les Goudes, one of the most beautiful places to visit in Marseille. This quarter in the 8th arrondissement of Marseille is like a world of its own, between land and sea, nestling between the Mediterranean and the start of the Calanques. At the end of the road, the majestic setting is a guarantee of a revitalizing break when you come from the town: plunge your eyes into the emerald glints of the water before turning around to admire the wild, white rock. And then wander through this fishing and yachting harbour, well-known for its little houses, the locals, its little restaurants which are all faithful to the spirit of the place. At dinnertime, sit down in a restaurant in Les Goudes: on the terrace, just as dusk is clothing the sky, you are presented with a freshly-caught fish before it is brought back fully prepared for you to enjoy. A way of life! And for maximum serenity, go for spring or autumn to make the most of Les Goudes in peace and quiet. There isn’t a lot of space, so choose public transport: the 19 bus or the ferry via Pointe Rouge in summer.
