The eastern Mediterranean coast offers a wealth of natural features, as varied as they are beautiful, including hidden creeks, wide open bays and, of course, the characteristic steep-walled inlets or calanques. Its beaches, whether of sand or shingle, are by turns wild and remote – nestling below pine and oak woodland – and busy and urban as in Marseille, Martigues or La Ciotat. Directly to the east of the Bouches du Rhône delta and the Camargue lie the clear waters of the Côte Bleue, its arid hills dropping down to more picturesque calanques.
From your campsite in Bouches du Rhône you can explore the coast from La Couronne coastguard lookout tower to the picturesque port of L'Estaque, a series of coastal paths reveals the biodiversity of the sea bed which draws so many divers. Martigues has its canals, Marseille the magnificent basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde.
A camping holiday in the Bouches-du-Rhône means sun, sea and a riot of warm, southern colour. Not to mention a warm Provencal welcome and a festive atmosphere with a taste of Mediterranean cuisine, a game of boules, a celebratory summer aperitif and the chance to meet a local producer or two thrown in for good measure. You’ll never want to leave!
