"Plage de la Saulce" is situated at the end of the "Sentier du Littoral" signposted footpath which runs all the way along the pretty Côte Bleue coast. This charming beach of golden sand is attended by a lifeguard in summer and fully fitted out with toilets, showers, bars and restaurants...
La Saulce would come from the Provençal "Sau" (pronounced "Saou") which designates salt. An ancient spring of salt water flowing there gave it this name. It was known to shepherds because their sheep refused to drink its water.

In 1832, it was at La Saulce that the Duchess of Berry landed. Her project was to raise Marseilles against Louis Philippe and to have her son, the Count of Chambord, proclaimed King of France.

Above the cove, the small Chapel of Sainte Croix seems to watch over...
