Aux Goudes



On Fridays Xavier and I often set out to find a different angle of the Mediterranean. I had heard about Les Goudes, the southern most point of Marseille, its 8th arrondissement, and had wanted to go for a while. Situated at the verge of the Calanques, deep inlets in the sea enclosed by high sea cliff walls, this little port shares the same turquoise water and rocky terrain. Just one little road leads in and out and I have heard traffic on weekends or during the summer is one reason many people avoid it entirely. Off season this spot was enchanting. We hiked up to the little restaurant on Cap Croisette, La Baie des Singes. Just open for the season, we ate octopus and giant sea bass, brought to the table directly from the sea and laid out for approval before cooking. The views from here are stunning - across the jeweled water to Île Marie, an protected island, which is a bird refuge today. We want to bring our inflated kayak Xavier recently acquired out to explore…
