A cove close to Marseille and easy to reach
The hectic Marseille forgotten, we are here very close and so far from the urban agitation at the same time! A few blocks from the Old Port, we fall into a magnificent mineral landscape.
Marseilleveyre is the second of Marseille’s calanques, when you follow the coast. From the port of Callelongue, a 45-minute walk along the GR 98 path is enough to take you to a corner of paradise, along this coastal path, a real balcony over the sea!
The pebble and sandy beach is larger than the beaches of the neighbouring calanques, but still very busy due to its proximity to the town and easy access.
A dozen huts without water or electricity are still exceptional jewels in this wild cove at the gates of the second largest city in France. What a contrast! A very rustic life, far from the comfort of the city. Bathed in sunshine, often swept by the Mistral wind, populated by tourists or deserted, the Calanque de Marseilleveyre is all this at once!
From the calanque you have a magnificent view of the Riou archipelago and, further away, of Cap Canaille. The return to civilisation is easy by taking the large Malvallon.
