Calanque de Mugel

La Ciotat - Beach

A true geological fortress built on the secondary streams whose pebbles formed during the eras, in a reddish conglomerate, the "Poundingue" of La Ciotat, the Calanque du Mugel is an exceptional natural site nested in the shelter of the Bec de l'Aigle massif.
The calanque is home to the Parc du Mugel, a verdant setting that invites you to take a walk and discover the many plants of our region.
