Just off the coast of Marseilles, the islands of Pomègues and Ratonneau, connected by a sea wall, present an arid, windswept landscape where sea birds seek refuge. The rugged contours of the coastline are broken up by rocky inlets, fine sandy beaches and small coves. On Ratonneau you can see the Neoclassical chapel, and the Hôpital Caroline, designed by architect Penchaud, where in centuries gone by, those who had contracted yellow fever were kept in quarantine before being allowed access to the city. Take time to appreciate the unrestricted, breathtaking view of Marseilles - a vantage point that only the islands can offer!
