La Cayolle area is ideally situated along the national park in the 9th district, between the city and one of the most beautiful calanques of Marseille, the calanque of Sormiou. There is the water treatment plant of Marseille that treats wastewater before pouring it sadly in the sea near the calanque of Cortiou. Next to the station, there is a parking and the start of the road that join the col then the calanque of Sormiou. The neighbourhood was renovated this last years but the delinquency still present. This is why it is recommended not to leave valuables in car or on the beach.
