Did the 3 stop boat tour. It was very pleasant. Saw more that would have on the hike, but did not get to spend time in the water.

The callangues are interesting and are deffinatelly worth visiting them. We took a boat to visit them and we managed to see 5 in one hour. You will feel the beauty entering your heart in that place.

We chose to hike the Calanques. Walkers will love it. But those in flip flops or an aversion to very rough surfaces and climbing for long stretches will not! Trainers are a minimum, boots are better. Take plenty of water and sunscreen (although there is a kiosk selling water, icecream etc about 10 minutes into the walk to Port Pin)... More

We took the 5 stop boat trip. I do not understand the other reviewers about the boat options, we found only one company that offered the visit. There is a kiosk with a huge queue in front of it, and that is where you can select your trip. Everybody takes the one that starts the soonest, the lady offers that... More

There are three ways you can get to the Calanques - hiking, by boat or by kayak. Please note that if you're planning on going during the summer, you have until 11am if you decide to go hiking. Because of high risks of fire, it is prohibited to go after a certain hour. If you trespass, you will be given... More

You can catch a train from Gare St. Charles to Cassis almost once an hour (except on weekends). They run from tracks (Voie) 3 and 5 which are along side of Voie A. Get tickets from a machine if you have a credit card with a chip in it, or from the ticket office just beyond the head of Voie... More

Visited the Calanques on our honeymoon. We rented a boat from Loco Bateau (horrible). The boat we rented had a hole in it, so they gave us a little dinghy. It was a perfect, calm day, but the wake from the large tour boats and yachts, along with the swells on the open water made it very nerve-racking. When we... More

Blue lagoon movie kind of perfect setting. very clean, almost equaly cold....but such a beauty for the eyes that you don't even need to swim in it to feel happy. A must for whoever visits the Calanques.

These natural beauties are definitely worth the boat trip. We visited eight calanques on a fairly calm day and really enjoyed the trip. I would like to return to swim in some of these secluded spots.

When visiting Cassis we took a "5 Calanques" boat trip at the harbor. We thought a 1 hour trip would be fine because we were travelling with children. It turned out amazing. The kids loved the boat trip and we were amazed by the beauty of the Calanques. It was really impressive.
