The most amazing place you'll see close to downtown. This à GO TO place, everyone in Marseille need to see this cute island.

If you're looking for nature and seclusion, this is a great bet. Amazing for sunbathing and swimming - rocky cliffs abound and you won't be crowded too much. Bring a picnic and enjoy the nature!

The Iles du Frioul are located outside Marseille, near the Ile d'If. A quick ferry ride will get you there, but there isn't a huge amount to do on the island. We read about the supposedly unique flora and fauna, but most of what we saw was pretty barren. Great place to catch some sun or take a walk along the rocky coast, but not much else here.

Take a ferry from old port to spend a day with locals and tourist on this recreational zone. Visit neighbor island to see Castle of Monte Cristo.

If you're looking to get sun and swim away from everyone else, Marseille doesn't sound like a destination to go to. But, if you go to the harbor of Marseille and take a quick (ten to fifteen minute) water taxi ride to Iles du Frioul you'll find yourself in a different world.

The islands are large rocks with a small village on them and an amazing view of Marseille. The rocks created small, personal fjords in between each point on the island which are perfect for walking down to, spreading out a blanket with friends, and swimming. The water is deep, clear, and beautiful.

My friends and I went and the swimming was amazing. We jumped off 10 foot cliffs into the Mediterranean and the water, over 30 feet deep, was so clear you could see fish swimming around.

Absolutely amazing and unique experience I can't recommend enough!
