First calanque from Marseille with a small harbor, a restaurant and a small sand beach. A nice spot to enjoy swimming and climbing during the summer. The road is sometime closed to car during the summer due to fire hazard.

After 2.3km turn right on Boulevard Camille Blanc and keep going straight on Avenue Ludovic Lègre.
