Carro is a charming little fishing port, still in operation, located just near Martigues. Its fish market attracts people from throughout the region and is a real treat for the eyes and the taste buds!

Situated just a stone's throw from the port, "Plage de Carro" is a fairly small shingle beach, just big enough to accommodate the families and surfers who come here to tackle the waves when the wind is blowing. Like much of the Côte Bleue coast, this is also an excellent diving spot: Carro is particularly renowned for the Baou Tailla quarry lying just under its waves, which experienced divers can explore by passing through a heart-stopping siphon.

The stones from the quarry now offer a perfect habitat for local fauna and it is not uncommon to come across an octopus, lobster or dalmatian discodoris - a charming little mollusc covered with brown spots, reminiscent of a dalmatian's coat.
