Pharillons

Marseille, France

English below
Ce point est situé dans le périmètre du coeur de Parc National des Calanques. Ce site, accessible à tous les niveaux est incontestablement l’une des plongées les plus spectaculaires de Marseille. Un tombant abrupte de 45 mètres d’un côté et un plateau à 25 mètres de l’autre sont séparés par un mur rocheux ouvert d’une série de trois arches couvertes de gorgones rouges. Enfin, l’épave du Liban (36 mètres) fait de ce site l’un des plus réputés de la région.

Located on an island in the National Park "les Calanques", the spot is a famous scuba diving spot near Marseille. Underwater, a cliff and a shelf are separated by a rocky wall where you can see many corals. Also, you can see the "Liban" wreck, which participates in the famousness of the spot.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Pharillons is sampled from January 1st to December 31st

SOURCE INFORMATION

As part of the Watermen Testers program, Surfrider Foundation Europe volunteers monitor recreational marine and freshwater quality at several sites in the region Nouvelle-Aquitaine. The sampling season goes throughout the year, on an irregular basis depending on availability of volunteers. That is why the monitoring frequency selected is "Other" for all the beaches in the region.

Priority is given to places where Watermen Testers suspect a pollution. Before (from 2014 to 2017), samples were collected bi-monthly. According to the European Directive 2006/7/CE, water quality is based on 2 bacteriological parameters: E. coli and enterococcus. Threshold between average and poor water quality :
Freshwater :
Enterococcus  660 CFU/100mL
E. coli : 1800 CFU/100mL
Marine water:
Enteroccocus : 370 CFU/100mL
E. coli: 1000 CFU/100mL

A beach is marked green if the two results (Enterococcus and E. coli) are under European thresholds.
A beach is marked red if one of the two or the two results is/are above the European threshold.
A beach is marked grey when there are no current results or there is no available information.

Special status beaches:
Due to the high frequentation of beaches during the summer and the occurrence of storms, leading to wastewater treatment plant overflows, some beaches are exposed to short term pollutions.
