Calanque of Marseilleveyre
The calanque de Marseilleveyre has a small shingle and sand beach, a few cabins and a seafood restaurant bar.
It is located at the bottom of the Marseilleveyre summit (432m) and the Malvallon, linking the col de la Selle to the sea (the valley burned in 2013). The calanque is quite big and large enough to be remote. Because of the dry weather, the vegetation is composed mainly by aloes, Barbary figs and perennial plants. Marseilleveyre allows you discover a totally new environment, for only one hour walk, in front of Riou Archipelago, and a view on the Cap Canaille.
