Great cove that ends in sandy beach and a wide valley. Beautiful site. About thirty boats in August at night. Not far from the beach to get out the dog ...

Grande calanque qui se termine en plage de sable et un large vallon. Magnifique site. Une trentaine de bateaux en août la nuit. Pas très loin de la plage pour sortir le chien...

It is certainly my best anchorage on the Riviera. Even at the end of June at 18h there is room. And the view that we have when climbing a little above the port ...!

C'est certainement mon plus beau mouillage sur la côte d'azur. Même fin juin à 18h on trouve de la place. Et la vue que l'on a en montant un peu au-dessus du port... !

Beautiful bay is a beautiful beach that is reached after having moored the tender in the small port. Pretty little houses above the bay as well as a chateau restaurant

Bella baia è bella spiaggia che si raggiunge dopo aver ormeggiato il tender nel piccolo porto. Carine le casette sopra la baia così come ristorante chateau

A very beautiful place well sheltered. In the summer, many boats come and go. Attention anchoring by 10m of bottom.

Un très bel endroit bien abrité. En été dans la journée beaucoup de va et viens de bateaux en tous genres. Attention mouillage par 10m de fond.

Brilliant spot in the right weather. Well worth an overnight. Beautiful clear water and a good restaurant up on the beach.

Very beautiful Calanque water is wonderful great for snorkeling! The ideal late afternoon and early morning before the return trips of the shuttles. The view from the ground is very beautiful, take the small coastal path (access reserved for users on the right small passage to access it)

Très belle Calanque l'eau est magnifique super pour le snorkeling ! L’idéal fin d'après-midi et tôt le matin avant les allers retours des navettes. La vue depuis la terre est très belle, prendre le petit chemin côtier (accès réservé aux usagers sur le côté droit petit passage pour y accéder)

Beautiful creek, arrive after incessant ball shuttles that run between the boats at anchor.

Magnifique calanque, il faut arriver après le bal incessant des navettes qui se faufilent entre les bateaux au mouillage.

Great place! wide cove with plenty of room for mooring 300m from the beach. Beautiful scenery, ideal for a stopover. Appendix advised. The water is quite cold.

Superbe endroit ! Calanque très large avec beaucoup de place pour le mouillage à 300m de la plage. Paysage superbe, idéal pour une halte. Annexe conseillée . L'eau est assez froide .
