Calanque de Sormiou: a turquoise blue sea adored by divers
Like most coves, Sormiou offers an exceptional landscape. Formerly inhabited by fishermen from Provence and peasants, the creek of Sormiou still retains the traces of its past through the small fishing huts with basic comfort installed at the edge of the water or the terraces, crops in floors installed in the massif.
But Sormiou is above all an ideal spot for diving enthusiasts. Professional and amateur divers visit all season to admire the splendor of the seabed and the diversity of fish, crustaceans and shells that abounds in the creek.
And it must be said that the turquoise water is attractive: who has never wanted to take a dip in a beautiful clear water to cool off on a hot summer day!
