Calanque du Mugel Beach

Leisure Water sports, Beach / Bathing Area Underwater trail
  • Plage de la Calanque du Mugel


The beach of the Calanque du Mugel is a corner of paradise on the edge of clear turquoise water within the Calanques National Park.
It is rather two beaches, a large one and a small one, both made of pebbles and both overlooking the atypical bay of La Ciotat, its Bec de l'Aigle and its nearby Ile Verte.

From there, everything is possible: swimming, discovering the sea bed with a mask and a snorkel, and if the weather is hot, walking in the botanical park just above.

The cove and its park are protected by the Bec de l'Aigle against the mistral and the microclimate that reigns there has allowed the development of a tropical flora between cactus, bamboo and birds of paradise.

Activities on site: discovery of the marine environment and visit to the botanical park. Games for young children (inside the botanical park). Restaurant.

This is a non-smoking beach and dogs are not allowed on the beach.
Opening period (s)All year round.
