Beaches of Corbières – l’Estaque
A mythical district of the city, it is here that the only beaches of the northern districts are found, preceded by landscaped gardens with a municipal nautical base. Three beaches follow each other, they are supervised and easy to access. Shallow, partly shaded, they are made of fine sand and pebbles, equipped with toilets, showers and a free clothes locker. They are perfect beaches for families! Nearby there is a refreshment bar, a playground (volleyball…). Spaces are also set up for picnics, sports, and creative activities are also offered.
From this place, a magnificent postcard is offered to you, you can admire a beautiful panorama of the Marseille coast!
Between two baths, you can go for a walk in the village of l’Estaque, a source of inspiration for several artists and painters, Cézanne, Dufy, Renoir…and also the setting for the film “Marius and Jeannette” by Robert Guédiguian. A true Provençal and Marseille authenticity!
And you can also feel it on the plate with the famous « Chichis Frégis » or the “panisses” to be tasted after an afternoon of idleness.
