Marseille offers lots of interesting spots, within easy reach of each other. Le Prado with NW, can be a really a funny spot, with glassy waves and side wind.

The spot is easy to reach (see map at the end of the article), and also offers good logistics on the shore. Generally, you get to the spot from Marseille center, driving along Avenue du Prado, until you reach the sea. Then, you turn left into Avenue Pierre Mendès France, which runs along the sea in the south direction. After 2-300 meters, you will see the spot beach on the right (at the Borely Horses Racecourse), and you'll find a parking place in one of the several car parks close to it.

On the waterfront (see point shown on the map), the public toilets, often found in France beaches (a sign of civilization), are available. Continuing south, along the waterfront (even on foot), at the first next roundabout, there is a dining area where you can eat something.

We do not know of windsurf shops in the area. Just south, though, you can find Pacific Palissades, a windsurfing rental center, near the other two Marseille spots (Pointe Rouge, and Les Glissants), where you can ride in this area.
