You will start at the path under the cret of Saint Michel for 2 km with an exceptional view of the Calanque of Mogiou, famous for its “cabanons”.



You will then walk the path above Cap Surgiton.

You will enjoy a first view on the Calanque of Surgiton, a famous calanque with two coves and on the rocky islet of Torpilleur.

You can also admire the unobstructed view of the long and high cliff « Falaise des Toits” dominating the sea at more than 100 meters.


Then. You will walk 3 kms to reach the Calanque of Surgiton, one of the most beautiful calanques, accessible only on foot.
