Calanque of Morgiou
The calanque of Morgiou is quite deep. At the end there is the port and still some professional fishermen, cabins, and bar restaurant. On the right, the path of the old GR (hike circuit) goes to the cap Morgiou (in the Anse de la Triperie, at the very end of the cap you can find the prehistoric Cosquer cave).
On the left, the path passes above a small protected beach, and goes to the second seawall, then to the fallen rocks. The paths going up behind the beach allow you to get to Sugiton, passing near the Blue Cave. At the port, you can witness History, when the king was here, with the presence of steps directly curved in the rock. The King came in 1622 to attend a « pêche à la madrague » (an old fishing technique using a net to catch tunas).
