We didn't buy the trial map. Got by with the free map from the info center, but paid very close attention to east/west/north/south and intersections. Overall the hike was actually easier than I expected...but there were some challenging spots! (In my late 20s and work out 3x a week) Ups and downs from town, then one great big incline hill... More

Crystal clear waters. Unique colors. The harbour/town is very cute. Unfortunately the restaurants around are some kind of tourist traps.

The views are fantastic. Cliffs, sailboat ports, hikes at all fitness levels. You can walk to one or more calanques, fjord type rocky inlets. With the sun above and the mistral in your hair, view the sailboats and turquoise water.

Strenuous walk, about an hour round trip to do the first. We're in our 60's, completed the second, looked at the challenge of attempting the third and so glad we did. We stopped to eat our packed lunch along the way and the round trip took us about 6 hours but so glad we did. Look up images on search... More

We enjoyed a wonderful boat trip around the Calanques. The scenery is absolutely stunning and we were so pleased we visited this area. Just beautiful.

We enjoyed the boat ride out to see the calanques - was especially nice to be out on the water and to be able to look back at the shoreline of Cassis. We chose to do the 3 calanque trip which was sufficient, and reasonably priced.

Easy trip, weather was super and the trip the right length. Scenery is beautiful - well worth seeing from the see, even if you do walk them too! The only thing was all the commentary was in French and our French was not up to it! But our loss!

We booked a half day tour from Aix en Provence with Rendez-vous Provence with Chris for €79. We were picked up promptly and driven directly to Cassis, the meeting point, best paths, views and shopping clearly explained and taken to the boat for our 45 minute cruise to the first three calanques. There were only 11 on board which made... More

this park is picturesque to say the least. not many sandy beaches. mostly rocky outcroppings. you don't want to be barefoot if you jump in. some nude bathers. restaurants with views of the deep blue water. hiking trails with points of interest marked and scenic views. boat tours available in cassis. a most pleasant afternoon.
