To protect the calanque of Sugiton and les Pierres tombées from significant erosion linked to overcrowding, the National Park limits the number of visitors from June to September.
Access is by reservation and presentation of a qrcode.
See: How to access Sugiton by reservation ?
The calanque de Sugiton has two creeks, both with a small shingle beach. In front of the calanque there is an island called Le Torpilleur because it looks like a torpedo boat.
Further, there are flat rocks and the beach down the cliffs. Naturists used to go there, but it is now forbidden since a tragic accident in 2005. Sugiton has a very beautiful setting, with high cliffs. On one side the path goes to Morgiou, and on the other side it goes to the calanque de l’Oeil de Verre. There are many rocks that have fallen into the sea. We can go there from Marseille by the road 559 down the col de la Gineste, in the direction of Luminy campus. There is a big parking and a fountain. The path is a false-flat until the pass, where you will find a panoramic viewpoint on the right, 500 meters away. There is a view on the calanque of Morgiou and the open sea (it’s worth having a look). Otherwise you can follow the winding road going down to Sugiton.
