Our opinion on the Calanque de Malmousque

Adresse of the Calanque de Malmousque : Rue Va à la Calanque 13007 Marseille

Calanque de Malmousque in Marseille is the only creek on the Malmousque peninsula next to the Vieux-Port (north part of the peninsula). This calanque is very original with beautiful provencal homes around the harbor. Swimming space is located on the right side of the calanque along the cliff. We only find rocks and a concrete area. Access to the sea is not easy but the area is very picturesque. Across is the “rocher des pendus” on the opposite bank of the military center.

To get here, we advise you to park on Chemin du Genie. There are only a few parking places but they are little known – perpendicular to the corniche Kennedy, then take Rue Boudouresque and then Chemind des Genie).

The people of Marseille like to lay out on the rocks. This site is rather secretive and we find hardly any tourists!
