road access

From the D559 or A50, go South through the city of La Ciotat following signs for "Route des Cretes" or "Calanques", then "La Garde" or "Calanques", then follow signs for "Figuerolles" – to reach the entry to the Anse de Figuerolles (also called "Calanque de Figuerolles"), inlet of the Sea.

Parking lot just a few meters from the entrance. There is also on-street parking.

The sea inlet of Anse de Figuerolles has a pebble beach (latitude/longitude ~ N43.1667 E5.5972) surrounded by dramatic cliffs and rocks - (especially the Capucin) composed mainly of puddingstone. Also a restaurant.

There is a small sport-climbing crag (latitude/longitude ~ N43.1668 E5.5967) (routes at difficulty around 5a + 5b) close above the west side of the water of the Anse de Figuerolles. Another crag farther and more complicated to reach is on tne NE face of the Capucin (routes at difficulty around 5b to 6a).

Also close the spectacular peak of the Bec de l'Aigle, and close to the west end of the Traversée des Parpèles (seacoast Tour around the Bec de l'Aigle).
