Carry le Rouet Beaches and Calanques
This small and charming seaside resort on the Côte Bleue between sea and pine forests is one of the destinations that offers the most beautiful beaches in the region. Sand, gravel, rocks, the range is wide. In addition, the beaches are accessible to families and the clarity of the water is well known. But Carry le Rouet is also famous for its sea urchins and its living environment. It's the perfect place for your vacation in the south o France!
Carry is also a multitude of small coves and other small, almost confidential, swimming and diving spots. The locals know all the secrets, don't hesitate to ask them, even if the best "spots" are sometimes jealously kept. Think about renting boats or, if you don't have a license, why not take the chance to take part in a boat license internship?
It is an excellent starting point to discover the Côte Bleue and its charming and typical villages.
Le Rouet beach is the largest. Natural, with sand and pebbles, it has a parking lot nearby and is well indicated.
Cap Rousset beach is located in the heart of the marine reserve in the Barqueroute district. This charming beach, reconfigured as terraces, is a stop on the underwater path of the Côte Bleue.
Fernandel Beach takes its name from the fact that it was once the private beach of the villa built by Fernandel near Carry Port. When the villa was sold, the city bought the beach and reopened it to the public. It is ideal for families because it is shallow and protected.
Les Beaumettes beach is appreciated because it is shallow. It is accessible by car thanks to a free car park nearby. So don't hesitate to bring your children with you.
In July and August, the animators of the marine park provide free access to the fauna and flora of the seabed. Showers, toilets, first aid station and parking nearby.
Life in Carry le Rouet
Beyond the great blue, Carry's soul lies in its small marina, the epicenter of the town. The port has many restaurants offering seafood specialties, including sea urchins. The bars and restaurants on the beach will allow you to have a drink while admiring the view. The sea urchinade is a real institution in Carry. Since 1960, the first three Sundays of February have been the occasion for a large sea urchin and shellfish tasting on the port. Sea urchins are hand-picked by professional fishermen.
The port is also the arena where fiery petanque games are played, as it was when Fernandel established his second home there not far from there. The Côte Bleue offers many activities related to the sea, boating, diving, fishing. It's all the warmth of the south, the cicadas, the pine forest, the aperitifs and meals by the sea.
In short, a powerful holiday feeling. So don't hesitate to choose Carry-le-Rouet for your next holiday rental.
