We went by boat from the quay at Cassis. They are easy to reach, and we enjoyed every minute. We saw five calanques and each was a little different., all really beautiful in different ways.The boat was clean, freshly-serviced and professionally skippered. Only downside - we did not have the grandchildren with us.

Was in Cassis in Sept 2015...apart from being a charming little seaport (away from the ostentation of much of the Med.) with a remarkably diverse selection of cheese, Olives, produce, clothing etc on it's market day...it the BEST departure point to explore the Calanques by boat. If you depart from Marseille, you spend a lot longer on open water, getting... More

Beautiful landscape typical from the south of France. The weather was really nice, but i think the best season to visit it must be spring

“He who has seen Paris and who has not seen Cassis can say … I have seen nothing.” Frédéric Mistral Nobel Prize laureate How could anyone make such a bold statement about Cassis, France, a medieval village in Provence? After just a few hours in this village on the Mediterranean coast, I began to understand. It is really really expensive... More

We took a 45 minute boat tour of the area around Cassis. It was a lovely trip, but the boat didn't stop anywhere. It was very busy with heaps of boats sightseeing, even kayaks which wouldn't have been comfortable as the water was quite rough. All along the coastline, people were sunbaking on the cliffs - like mountain goats. We'd... More

Worth the hike, and then some. If you are in the area, you MUST visit these gorgeous hills. It's absolutely breathtaking!

over priced Cassis! For your money your far better off in Ciotat or St Maxime where priced are somewhat reasonable. Cassis is a definite no-no for anyone more sense than money for it is filled with characters with more money than sense. Shame on the local businesses for over-pricing.

Go on a quiet day - out of peak tourist season - and this is an oasis of calm and beauty. You can walk around or bring a mat, and just soak up the vitamin d.

This is well worth the hike. One of the most beautiful places we have visit. Note - you must like the outdoors and a bit of hiking. We took a few trains and a bus to get here and begin our hike, but it was well worth it.

When in Cassis take one of the boat trips to experience some wonderful views of the Celanques. You will also see the house featured in the French Connection.
