It was 1975 and in spite of having a long coastline, Marseille wasn't well equipped as far as beach facility and safety was concerned. The Plages du Prado was thus created, combining park and beach facilities all along the coast. Calling this area the "poor man's riviera" would be selling it short. The beaches are a lot less crowded, a lot less pretentious and a lot more beautiful, and the water is ideal for surfing, especially in autumn and winter. Dining at any of the restaurants along l'Escale Borély will round up the perfect day at the beach.
The famous skate park, simply known as the "bowl," is the place where skaters and skateboarders, riders of all ages and different levels gather to share unique moments of fun and leisure and where everyone is free to try new tricks. Created by Jean-Pierre Collinet, the Skate Park features several boat hulls and each hull represents an endless wave. The largest is 2.70 meters (eight feet) deep. Each spring and summer several events and competitions are held, with many international skateboard superstars in attendance. The Skate Park of Marseille is located only a few steps from the sea, near the Escale Borely.
