We took a kayak to the calanques and spent the afternoon on the beach. What a beautiful place it is. My only advice is to go as early as possible as it does get quite busy the later it gets in the day.

Loved this trip. We opted to visit three of the calanques before enjoying lunch in Cassis. Lots of boats were available in the harbour. We were fortunate to have seats in the bow of the boat sitting outside. It was great to enjoy the sea air as we sail out and then around the beautiful inlets before returning to harbour.... More

Having read a number of reviews, I still remained a little uncertain of what "the calanques" actually were. Were they the rocky headlands or outcrops or were they the bays and inlets just to the west of Cassis? We chose to take a boat trip to find out and my conclusion is that they are a series of beautiful bays... More

An intermediate hike with steep, rocky descent to the beach, but doable. We took hiking poles and they will help on the walk down. Bring your camera!

We took the next boat out, which happened to be the 4 calanques, not the super short trip nor the longest trip. Perfect for us. The sky was clear and the water was beautiful. Loved going into the calanques to see the individual features of each one. We had decent English narration. If you don't have the stamina or time... More

Stunning natural beauty. Try to go out of season as very popular. The walk to the further away Calanques is by far the best. The boat trips are great too. Beware, what ever they they say about departure time, the boats are only leaving the port when full!

Looks even better in person. The downside is that the water was too cold to swim in. Its do-able, you just have to not be a wuss like we were. Park at the street by the University and walk from there. Then find your own way. There are so many routes once inside. Some are easy and paved. Some are... More

worth a visit once , nice view and thrilling mountaineers in the way, take a boat from aux view port ., the cost for single person was 29 euro for a 2 hour trip . It is worth spending the money.
