Our opinion on the Calanque de Port-Pin

Adresse of the Calanque de Port-Pin : D559 13009 Marseille

Calanque de Port-Pin in Marseille is located between the calanques Port-Miou and En-Vau. The latter is closer. This calanque is made up of stones and sand in some areas. It is relatively narrow, about 40 meters wide. We find shade under the pines and protection from the mistral.

The less courageous will come here by boat from Cassis (only to see, impossible to land). Otherwise you can come here from Calanque de Port-Miou by taking the trails for about 30 minutes by foot or from D559 by car (though access is prohibited by car from mid-June to mid-September). Across from the military zone, enter into the Gardiole forest and park in the lot. Continue by foot on the path that descends toward the sea then take the little path that crosses the little valley Pailladou. You will need about an hour and a half to get there by foot.

Access to Port Pin cove

Access is easy from Port Miou (very good footpath). For cons, the descent to the cove is a little more difficult (slippery rocks by sector).
