Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I walked here on Christmas Day and it was an absolute joy. The views are wonderful and the cool sea breeze was a relief. It’s very popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists.

This is a lovely walk along the coastline where you get great views of the city, the sea and there's even a little sandy beach to stop at if you wish. It's a stroll I did during the day and after the sun went down when it's nice and cool and where you see the city lit up too.

I live in the Prado area, so it's quite close to the Corniche. I have walked the road umpteenth times over the years. The Mediterranean sea breeze and the fresh air make this an enjoyable walk. Along the way, if I start from the Prado side, I will soon come across a monument which resembles the propeller of a ship, a sculpture by the artist sculpteur César Baldaccini. It marks the independence of Algeria in 1962, and calls for those who were born or stationed there for long term called Pieds-Noirs to repatriate. It says 'The City of Marseille. To the colonial army which for years united, without distinction of origin, colour or race, men of courage and self-sacrifice. They fought at the cost of their blood for the freedom of France. They carried the victorious flags of the overseas regiments to the heart of Europe. Hail to you who have sacrificed yourself ”. Then further ahead, there are different points of interest such as the bridge of fake coins, the valley of auffes and the Door of the Orient, all represent years long history and culture. The road is also equipped with cycle lane, and joggers like to run along the sea. For those who crave a picnic facing the stunning sea, stone long seats are found all the way. To get a closer view of the water, one can find stairs every now and again to descend near the water. Fishing is a leisurely pastime there, with less pollution then the other beaches on the left hand side of the Prado area. I particulary love to come here on Monday, it's the least crowded day.

I arrived this place on my rented scooter. It was a hot day so the wind made it doable. This place is great to just chill out and gaze at the sea and feel the breeze.

A long road that offers the chance to walk and at the same time enjoy the scenery. If you have nothing else to do then this is a perfect way to pass your time while relaxing. The views are fantastic and you can even see some of the small islands, like Chateau d' if, the island of the Count of Monte Cristo, just off the coast. Part of the road has been renamed in honour of the US president J F Kennedy.

You can make quite a nice walk from the south side of the old port tothe parc Borely. You pass the open air theatre, the monument for the fighters abroad and the Helice Cesar, for the people that came from Algeria. Nice views, but lots of cars!

I walked from the Old Port to L'Oriol first thing in the morning. The air felt great and the scenery was wonderful. It is a nice way to Chateau d'if from afar. This is a must do if you have the time!

We were staying very close to the War Memorial and enjoyed the walk along Cornish Kennedy many evenings - the sun sets over the sea. The walkway follows the sea for kilometres, we walked all the way to Prado one day - panoramic views of the sea. There are several places along the way where you'll find steps going down to small fishing coves, or beaches and there are many coffee shops and restaurants as well. It's a popular spot to try one of the many electric scooters so popular in Marseille, if that's your thing you've got 5 or more km of wide sidewalk ahead of you. For certain you come across many on your walk (you'll need to download the app before you go). There is no shade so this is not something you want to take on in the heat of the day. It would add another kilometer or so if walking from the port, or you could catch bus #83 and get down at Vallon d'Auffes and walk from there. The bus costs 1.50 euro, cash, just pay the driver (he can give change).

We stopped by the Monument aux Morts de l'Armée d'Orient as we traversed La corniche road before going to the Basilica. It was a nice drive by the seaside road dedicated to JFK. The monument was created in 1924: a competition was launched to create a national monument in tribute to the soldiers and sailors who died in the East and in distant lands. The monument was finally inaugurated on April 24, 1927 by the French President Gaston Doumergue. Based on the concept of a "portico in the open sky", the statues and ornaments refer to army fighters, such as the air force, with massive female figures with wings symbolizing heroism. This would have been a good place to stroll along the beach and enjoy the views of the islands if we had more time.
