Our opinion on the Baie des Singes Beach

Adresse of the Baie des Singes Beach : Cap Croisette 13008 Marseille

Baie des Singes Beach in Marseille is located in Goudes near Cap Croisette across from Maire. It is also called the beach of the end of the world by the people of Marseille. This little sand beach is protected by the sea from the dam. It is narrow but is agreeable and can be crowded on the weekend.

The environment is completely preserved with a lot of white rocks that are typical of the calanques. The island across is beautiful.

We also find a restaurant with a private beach in this bay.

This bay is nicknamed “Baie des Singes” (Monkey Bay) because it was a smuggling center and the children were asked to keep silent like monkeys...

To get here from Les Goudes, continue toward Cap Croisette. There is an improvised parking lot in the middle of the rocks. The Baie des Singes is accessible from the stairs dug into the rocks (10 minute walk).
