Our opinion on the Grand Soufre Beach

Adresse of the Grand Soufre Beach : Rue Reine Jeanne Île Ratonneau 13007 Marseille - Ile de Frioul

Grand Soufre Beach is behind the port of Frioul. This is the nearest beach to the village, yet it is unfrequented (it is not indicated, one usually goes to St Esteve Beach). Easily accessible via well-equipped stairs, the gravel beach is very nice and fairly well protected from winds. On the side, in the direction of the tip of Brigantine, there is a small very narrow creek with a small gravel beach. Nice but one has to get there first to reserve it!

To get to this beach from the pier, turn right towards Pomègues Island. At the dam (at the end of the village), turn right. The cove is fifty meters away.

Grand Soufre Cove is located behind the harbour and the village of Frioul (one can see inelegant buildings). The beach is small but not very famous (barely visible on the plan of the island).

Covered in gravel, the low angle suits everyone. Behind, one begins to see the semaphore on Pomègues Island.

Because of its shape, the cove is fairly well protected from the winds. Attendance is reasonable (photo taken in mid-August in late morning).
