Our opinion on the Cavaou Beach

Adresse of the Cavaou Beach : Route des Plages 13270 Fos-sur-Mer

Cavaou Beach in Fos sur Mer is located at the edge of the seaside resort on the road leading to the methane terminal of Fos. A kilometre long sandy beach surrounded by large free car parks, this beach remains pleasant even if the environment is very industrial (especially on the right side of the beach). On the left, the view of the marina of Fos and the old town is nice (slightly offset).

Because of the industrial environment, this beach does not get our most beautiful beach label. We advise you to go Grande Beach instead, which is a bit further away (although one is still very close by...).

Note that there is a tolerance for dogs on leash at the end of Cavaou Beach (on the pebble beach near the methane terminal).
