Ideally located in the center of Marseille, the Anse de la Réserve marina benefits from this geographical position to offer its boaters an ideal setting for discovering, or rediscovering, the city of Marseille.

Among the tourist attractions surrounding the port are historical monuments such as the Palais du Pharo, the Abbaye Saint-Victor, the Fort Saint Nicolas, the Vieux-Port and the Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde. Two atypical museums are also close to Anse de la Réserve; the Underwater Museum off the Catalan beach, as well as the Museum of the Soap of Marseille. In addition, on the shore in front of the port is the Fort Saint Jean, connected directly to the MUCEM (Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations).

In terms of natural spaces, the Parc Emile Duclaux and the Jardin de la Colline Puget are places maintained by the community, each with an exceptional view of the City. But it is also possible to access by boat to the île du Frioul, and to the Parc National des Calanques, whose rules should be consulted before any visit, for their conservation (they are accessible on the website of the Parc National des Calanques).

Culturally speaking, the boaters of Anse de la Réserve are just a few steps away from the Théâtre de la Criée, the Comédie de Marseille¸ as well as the Opéra, in addition to the cultural events occasionally organized by the Caza Delauze during the summer period.

Finally, the multitude of hotels surrounding the port are also accessible to boaters. Among these, the closest are; the Sofitel, the Novotel and the New Hotel Of Marseille, located less than 5 minutes walk from the Anse de la Réserve.
