Title in french : Îles du Frioul

Type : island

City : Marseille

The Frioul islands are a small archipelago located opposite the Old Port, composed by Pomègues and Ratonneau Islands (connected by a breakwater housing a marina) and If island with its castle made ​​famous by Alexandre Dumas in the Count of Monte Cristo novel.

Because the archipelago is inhabited and is part of the 7th arrondissement, a maritime connection is provided throughout the year.

Going to the Frioul islands, you'll be charmed by the crossing and a magnificent view that allows you to watch the old port fading away then the coastline of Marseille slowly appearing

If you decide to stop on the If island it will cost €5.5 extra .

Once at the Frioul port, you’ll have the choice between visiting Pomègues in the south or Ratonneau in the north, both places having the same exclusively mineral aspect. However, the greatest beaches are in the south and the small coves are in the north.

You may want to test both but keep in mind the time of the last shuttle ...
