Calanque de Sugiton

Calanque de Sugiton is one of the best known calanques, or coves, in Massif des Calanques, France. This picture-perfect pebble beach is worth the hour-long hike, and once you finally get to dip in the turquoise waters, surrounded by rocky cliffs, you’ll know you’ve landed in a true paradise. This is your chance to escape the usual, crowded European beaches in the summer months, but be sure to bring your own snacks and water, as this is as secluded and remote as it gets.
