Marseille in summer
In summer, during the months of July and August, Marseille welcomes many visitors to enjoy its beaches. From l’Estaque to l’anse du Bain des Dames, Catalans beach, Prophète beach and the Prado beaches, come and lay down your towel for a moment of idleness. Whether you’re perfecting your tan, playing on the beach or indulging in water sports, you’ll never be bored. A dip in the Mediterranean will refresh you to endure the summer heat.
In the evening, when the temperature drops, take the opportunity to sit on the terrace of a restaurant in the Vieux-Port or by the sea on the Corniche Kennedy, or curl up in an intimate cove like the Vallon des Auffes to sample local specialties, especially fish.
It’s also in the summer months that you can take part in the numerous events and festivals organized for a festive time: Marsatac festival, Delta Festival, Jazz des Cinq Continents, the Freestyle Cup…. Artists from all over the world come to Marseille to perform and offer Marseillais and tourists lively evenings.
