Our opinion on the Ratonneau Calanque

Adresse of the Ratonneau Calanque : Cap de Croix 13007 Marseille - Ile de Frioul

Ratonneau Cove and a small gravel creek are located at Cape Cross on Ratonneau Island (Archipelago of Frioul). Completely disregarded (it is at the end of the island), this small beach offers a preserved environment overlooking the bay of Marseille. Access is a little tricky (steep path) but one is sure to find a little paradise away from the bustle of the great beaches of the island.

To get to this cove from the port of Frioul, go in the direction of St Esteve Cove and Caroline hospital. At the latter, keep going a few dozen meters to Cape Cross. The cove is located below.
