Come to the spectacular Prado Beach to cool off and enjoy a drink by the sparkling sea or take a leisurely stroll along the promenade. For more energetic pursuits, choose from a range of activities including windsurfing, kayaking or snorkeling.
Marseille has not always been regarded as a beach destination. Prado Beach and many of the other beaches down the coastline were created as part of a project in the 1970s to give residents easy access to the water. The beach and adjoining parklands have become a hit with locals and travelers alike who flock here to partake in the activities and relax in wide open spaces.
In summer, take to the water on a sailboard, kayak, or with a snorkel and fins, all of which can be rented along the promenade. The beachside stadium offers a year-round program of sports and activities, from beach rugby and volleyball, to BMX.
Take a break from the beach with a pleasant walk through the adjacent Parc Balnéaire, a 26-hectare (64 acre) strip of parkland along the Mediterranean coastline. Here you’ll find a skate park and a replica of Michelangelo’s David statue.
Visitors in September can’t miss the beach’s annual Festival of the Wind, attended by over 100,000 kite-makers and enthusiasts from all over the world.
Make a day of your trip by visiting other nearby attractions such as the Ferris wheel at Borély Beach or the magnificent Borély Park.
Prado Beach is located 20 minutes south of the old port by bus. In the summer months, catch a ride on the hourly boat shuttle service to Prado from Vieux Port. Prado Beach offers plenty of public bathrooms and changing facilities and is very disability-friendly. A small fee is charged for stadium-hosted summer activities.
This aparthotel was nice. There are only 4 free parking spots. If you do not get one of these, you must park in a pay lot that is just outside the hotel. The immediate vicinity of the hotel was nice. However, we did not care for the beaches or strip restaurants/stores along the beach. The beach was ...
The layout for breakfast was with long tables. No real individuality. Asked for an extra pillow, however none available.
The room/apartment set-up was convenient for multiple travelers. The hotel is about 3 blocks from the Castellane metro stop, a major terminal on the Marseille system. It is in an area where you must walk several blocks to find a restaurant, but there is a wonderful bakery across the street.
Unmatched location , right by the sea , a little off center ( may be 1 mile from the port/downtown) Beautiful hotel , we only stayed one night . Nice service . All rooms gives on the sea ! Our room was a little small ; beautiful swimming pool ( but avoid the cocktail there at least the pins colada!) ...
Die Wohnung war praktisch und ordentlich eingerichtet. Wir fanden sie schön. Balkon mit Sicht aufs Meer war super. Boulangerie um die Ecke und Supermarkt gegenüber. Bestens. Es fehlte aber Einiges, was unserer Meinung nach zu einem guten Standard einer Fewo gehört: Föhn und Handtücher im Bad, Wasserkocher ...
