The Calanque du Mugel is a natural site sheltered by the rocky outcrop of the Bec de l'Aigle.
The calanque or rocky inlet is a geological fortress built in the torrents of the secondary era. Over the millennia, the pebbles have formed a reddish conglomerate, La Ciotat's characteristic puddingstone.
The calanque is home to a botanical park, Le Parc du Mugel, which invites visitors to discover many regional plants as they stroll, some of them very rare. It presents dense vegetation of many species: evergreen oak, chestnut, bay laurel, cork oak, carob, laurustinus, Aleppo pine, stone pine, maritime pine, clusters of bamboo, aromatic and medicinal plants, wild flowers and a collection of citrus trees and rose bushes.
The pools of water fed by a rainwater tank in the rock and plants such as reeds contribute a fresh atmosphere to certain parts of the park.
A steep path gives access to a viewpoint looking out on to the immensity of the sea.
A picnic area and children's playground are provided to add to the visit's attractions.
