The summer services for the navettes which go from the Vieux Port down to Point Rouge or along to L’Estaque and back will start on Saturday 29th April until 1st October.  Cost still 5€ each way.  If you haven’t tried these short journeys, they are a great way to see the coast and spend a little time in either community.  Pointe Rouge has a nice sandy beach and restaurants ‘pieds dans l’eau’, while L’Estaque has a walk around the viewing points that once drew painters from all over the country……loads of restaurants too.
