Calanques - Morgiou - Cret Saint Michel © BlueCube
Morgiou is the more easterly of the two most pronounced calanques, complete with its picturesque fishing village. Once again the approach to the area though the Marseilles' suburbs is a little harrowing, though once you pop over the col, things improve.
The cliffs here face southwest and offer great winter-sun conditions. The Paroi Noire is high and exposed to the Mistral and westerlies, the Arbri Cotier is low and very sheltered. Seepage isn't a problem, but there is no climbing in the rain to be had here.
Head for the southern suburbs of Marseilles towards the Les Baumettes prison. Signs for 'Morgiou' will lead you to the correct valley. Alternatively, for the Paroi Noire, park at Luminy and walk in as for Sugiton.
