Calanque du Devenson
Located between the calanque de l'Oeil de Verre and l'Eissadon, the Devenson is the least reachable calanque from Marseille to Cassis.
Because of the huge 200m cliffs above the sea, it is really difficult to get there. Only boats, kayaks and experimented climbers can reach it.
On the maps there is a small black path connecting l’Oeil de Verre to the Devenson. It is passing down the concave wall, then through the Corniches Paretti, but you should avoid it because it is very dangerous.
How to get there
- You can only get to the calanque du Devenson by sea, but you can look at it from the hiking trail GR98-51 along the crest.
- Duration: 2h10 (from Luminy)
- Take the main track from Luminy to Sugiton (N°6A). At the col de Sugiton, turn left then follow the track to la Grande Candelle, matching the red and white marked GR98-51 (You will need to follow these marks until the cliffs of Devenson). After 800 meters, just before passing on the cliff, the GR splits from the large track to go up on the left and reach slowly large cliff roads. They offer a beautiful view on the calanques, before getting to the Col de la Candelle. The path then goes through the Candelle valley, going around the Val Vierge. Then it goes down to the col des Charbonniers to finally get to the Devenson cliffs path.
