A day in La Ciotat

As many of you will be staying in La Ciotat for 24 hours, we’ve put together the ideal programme for you to make the most of the day while seeing the best of the town.


In the morning

Start the day with a sunrise from the Môle Bérouard.

Then enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the old port.

Then put on your best trainers and head for the Mugel. A twenty-minute walk will take you to the large botanical park and the two small creeks that make this place such a jewel.

A good idea for lunch: have a picnic in the Figuerolles cove! Just a 10-minute walk from Le Mugel, it’s well worth the diversions, believe us.

In the afternoon

For the more adventurous, take a stroll towards the Sémaphore du Bec de l’Aigle, a 1-hour walk from Figuerolles.

Then head back to the town centre to visit the Church of Notre-Dame de l’Assomption and stroll through the streets of La Ciotat’s old town in search of a little souvenir.

Treat yourself to a gourmet break in one of the town’s most beautiful squares (Sadi Carnot).

In the evening

In the early evening, head to Plage Lumière to enjoy the last rays of sunshine of the day.

A seaside dinner along the coastline will round off this wonderful day. Return to the town centre to enjoy the night market in the old port (only in summer).
