Between Marseille and Cassis, the Calanques are a succession of coves and creeks whose reputation is second to none. The turquoise blue of the Mediterranean, the white limestone cliffs, the rich scents of the scrubland, make it an exceptional setting for hiking.
We present a selection of trails to discover the most famous creeks: En-Vau, Port-Pin, Port-Miou, Morgiou, Sugiton, Sormiou. But also some less frequented circuits, although they offer equally spectacular views.
Departing from Cassis, this loop hike allows you to discover the Calanque d'En-Vau via the belvedere then via the valley. Reputed to be the most beautiful creek, En-Vau impresses with its high cliffs creating a magnificent setting around the sea. The walk ends by skirting the creeks of Port-Pin and Port-Miou.
Departing from the Luminy campus, this hike begins with an immersion in the scrubland, immersing the visitor in captivating colors and smells. The arrival at the creek of Sugiton is all the more beautiful, the sea gradually letting itself be discovered. The path continues through the Calanque de Morgiou, and offers a beautiful view of the Calanque de Sormiou from the ridges.
Note the presence of brief passages with ladders, for which the use of the hands is necessary.
This relatively short walk allows you to admire the Calanque de Sormiou from all angles, from Cap Redon to Baou Rond. And of course, to take a short swimming break there to take advantage of the space of the largest calanque in Marseille.
Bathing, very little for you? So we set off to attack the highest point of the Calanques massif: Mont Puget! Departing from the Luminy campus, this is a route with an elevation gain of approximately 500 meters, which offers a magnificent panorama of the Mediterranean Sea.
