This little nature park is a good walk from town but worth the effort. Quaint stoney beach nearby, lovely ocean views from Belvedere, but a stiff uphill walk on good track to get there. Plants from different parts of the world, bottlebrush and a gum...More

We were pleasantly surprised by this park! It is more a small nature park than a garden park. And you can walk around in about 1,5 hour. There are spectacular sea views. Ans there is also a small beach with a cafe/restaurant.

This is a great park to stroll and admire various type of plants and flowers. But you have to catch the Lavander still purple - so go there before August or mid-July. In addition there are superb views all-around. Climbing to the edge you will...More

It's a nice park, but it isn't anything exceptional. Worthy going if you are already in the city, but I wouldn't go back for that.

Amazingly clear water for a pebbled beach so close to a ship yard. The park is reasonably well maintained and manned by a security guard. Great views when you get up high and lots of climbers bring the cliff edges.

I was really looking forward to hiking in the park—there are so many great reviews. We got there and there was a large iron gate. The park was closed. I asked the security guard why it was closed and he said because of the Mistral...More

You have a bus (number 72) from Aix to la Ciotat (Tourism Office). 20 min by walk to the parc and calanque of Mugel.
