La Ciotat's sentinel
Getting here and regulations
Respect the natural environment: take your rubbish with you and do not create noise pollution.
Note: it is only possible to swim offshore from two calanques on the island (La Plageolle in the north and Seynerolles in the south). Saint-Pierre calanque is home to a restaurant and tiny marina. All very small, the calanques are overcrowded in summer.
There is an orientation table at Saint-Pierre fort (GPS coordinates: 43.159693, 5.616295), the highest point of the island at 50 metres, with a panoramic view of the ranges of La Ciotat La Sainte-Baume.
Getting to Ile Verte
Take the boat from La Ciotat Vieux-Port between April and October. See the shuttle website for more information.
