Sausset-les-Pins tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do


Sausset is a pretty fishing village surrounded by pine trees and garrigue scrubland, typical of the landscape along the Cote Bleue and the broad lagoon known as the Etang de Berre.

 Admittedly, some of Sausset's former quaintness has been engulfed by coastal development but its port overlooked by a 19th century chateau is still worth the detour. 

Here you'll find plenty of harbourside cafes and restaurants with a colourful market with your typical Provencal products. Fishing (tuna and sardine) is still the main source of income in Sausset and in summer months you'll witness sardine and tuna festivals a plenty!  If you are there in January the focus switches to shellfish and sea urchin festivals. 

If beach style living is your style you won't be disappointed.  There are plenty of white, shingle beaches with clear blue waters to explore.  There are also numerous beachside activities - divers will enjoy the artificial reef that lies just off Sausset's shore. 

If you enjoy walking the coastal paths around Sausset are the perfect spot to contemplate Marseille and her islands.
