Walks around the Pascalounet campsite


The Côte Bleue coastline is known for these various walks along its rocky inlets and beaches.

The stroll to the fort at Figuerolles is a walk which can be done in an afternoon and which offers beautiful views over the bay, passing alongside a shingle beach and caves. All you have to do is follow a path marked by a yellow signpost which begins on a little bridge and continues as far as a narrow bottleneck and descends once more into the Vale of Coucourdier. Next, climbing back out of this little dell, you re-join the trail to the fort, following the Vale of Fontêtes and descending once again in the direction of Vesse. You can continue as far as Vesse and Niolon or take the route which re-joins the bay of Figuerolles. On the same level as Vesse and passing beneath the last arch of the railway bridge, you will come to the route which runs parallel to the shore, high up on a ledge.

There are walks which are shorter and which will enable you to get the most out of the coastline, such as the Carry coastal path where you will discover many beaches and their bathing areas along the entire route. You must therefore follow the path that runs alongside the sea between Méjean and Martigues.

There is also the Martiques coastline path for schools which alternates between beaches, ports and archaeological sites on its route. At one time, the Phoceans used to extract stone for construction in Marseille on the outcrop between the port of Carro and the Bay of Verdon.

We also have a walk about twelve kilometres long which begins at Sausset-les-Pins, a small village situated on the Côte Bleue which has become a seaside resort. This walk leaves the shore, where you must take a surfaced road to get to the beaches at St. Croix.

Generally, the best known walks are always marked and we recommend that you come to the campsite reception for any information you need.
