What to see in the Niolon Calanque ?
The Calanque de Niolon is the second calanque after La Vesse, starting from l’Estaque (16th district of Marseille) in the direction of Martigues.
You can quickly walk around this charming village with its traditional houses and small huts by following the path that leads down to the port and to the only tiny beach.
Apart from the beauty of this picturesque little port, its main attraction is its unobstructed view over the harbour of Marseille and the islands of Frioul.
Its privileged location, sheltered from the wind, is ideal for scuba diving.
A UCPA centre on the spot offers its activities: a real haven of peace, its site occupies the entire peninsula of the calanque. Its location in the marine park and the remains of old shipwrecks off the coast make for beautiful discoveries in depth.
You will find a few restaurants on site and in particular the Auberge du Mérou which has a very large panoramic terrace and a few rooms.
