Calanque De Sormiou - Review

The Calanque De Sormiou is one of the largest and most beautiful calanques in the region, made all the more attractive by its sandy and cabana lined beach. A calanque is basically a small, restricted inlet on the coast, especially found in the Mediterranean area. Bring your snorkeling gear, for the brilliant and jewel-like waters have a lot of marine wildlife to enjoy. The beach can be deceptively quiet in the morning but gets crowded during the sudden afternoon rush of the people of Cayolle District. Trails from the beach area will take you to various high viewpoints over the beach. They can also take you to the highest point on Crete de Morgiou. Not far away is a submerged cave, the Grotte du Capelan, reachable from Sormious by walking towards Cape Redon. The rocks there can be slippery though, and the cave is frequently submerged so watch out for all the conditions before planning a visit.

Calanque De Sormiou, Marseille Reviews

  • Very nice place. Beautiful water and beach. When in Holliday season it may be crowded and extremely hot. In may everything is perfect!

  • Lovely hike and views, so worth the effort. Back a lunch! And a swim suit.

  • Best calanque of the park. Worthy going there.

  • Awesome views, not too heavy walking, lots of loose gravel, danger of sliding

  • Beautiful place, but local authorities do nothing about the thieves that thrive from stealing things from people's cars, that they leave in the parking. I was left with a broken window and missing baggage worth thousands. And police says it happens to a few people every day, yet they do nothing about it.
