The Vieux-port Pier is divided in two main zones. Near the Hotel you will find the boats that will take you to the world famous Calanques de Marseille. From the deep sea, the mineral sculptures of Sormiou, Morgiou or En-Vau are even more majestic. In the summer going by boat is the beat choice as the inland access is restricted due to fires.
4 km away from the Vieux-port is the archipel du Frioul. To get on the boat head to the fish market and the rue de Breteuil. In less than 10 minutes you will be in the Chateau d’If, you will go back in history of the Count of Monte Cristo.
This is Marseille’s RTM big success : From March to October, boats go hourly to the beaches of l’Estaque and la Pointe Rouge and will allow you to have a beautiful time and get a nice tan !
