Our opinion on the Port Pomegues Calanque

Adresse of the Port Pomegues Calanque : Port de Pomègues 13007 Marseille - Ile de Frioul

There is a small sandy cove (very unusual in Frioul) in Pomègues Calanque (former quarantine harbour to protect Marseille from outbreaks till the 19th century). It is very narrow and one settles mainly on rocks around it. Access to the sea is via a small sandy beach with a beautiful view stretching from the Bay of Marseille to Monkey Bay. There is a second small pebble beach on the right towards the Port of Pomègues but swimming is not possible due to a water line (at the entrance of the port).

Note that there is an aqua farm at the end of the cove, which produces since 1989 handmade creek sea bass and sea bream (organic fish).

To get to this cove from the port of Frioul, go to Pomègues Island. Just before the tower of Poméguet, turn left towards the harbour. The first cove is on the left about twenty meters away.

This photo was taken mid-August. Attendance is reasonable. Many people lie on the rocks around the beach.

Creek in the Pomègues Port - Frioul

There is a small pebble beach at the farm just before the house (at first glance used by a day care centre). However, a water line limits the swimming area (1 meter). Only to cool off.
