We joined approx 50 others for the 3 pm 22 euro low season cruise of the rugged nearby coastline replete with jagged peaks, enthusiastic climbers and secluded bays. The all French commentary would be better shortened to enable a parallel english version. Other than an arduous hike there is little choice if you want to take in the picturesque coastal... More

A visit to Marseille is not complete without visiting the most eastern-most part of the city, stopping at the little fishing quarter and continuing to the Calanque - a hike to a series of protected water-facing stone beaches. The hike can be long and warm, but the clear green-blue water will invite you to cool.

Take the boat tour and also go by land to explore these great natural cliffs. The cliffs are also popular for climbers.

Me and my boyfriend are not a hikers. We just happened to visit Cassis and of course decided to go to Calanques as well. That was an excellent decisions! We started to love hiking after this journey. The nature is so so breathtaking there. The waters are so clean and clear but surprizingly cold. Even freezing I could say. Anyways... More

We visited all 9 calanques which was nice but expensive and took a while. If you ae short of time and money just do the 3 calanques trip. The first 3 were the best.

It can be windy, so take a hat that covers your head and will not blow away. Be prepared to cover your camera since water spray could damage it, but oh what wonderful pictures you will have. Be sure to go! A wonderful time for both young and old.

We first visited Les Calanques and Cassis in 2013 with a quick side trip while on a cruise ship stop in Marseille. A few hours hiking the beautiful coast and quick trip through town were not enough. This trip we stayed two nights in Cassis. A leisurely hike to the first three calanques allowed us time to appreciate the spectacular... More

Spectacular scenery and an exhilarating walk for those who like to have a more strenuous and active vacation . The added bonus here of course are the variety of walking trails and access points and the possibility of ending up in Cassis for a carafe of Bandol rose and some fish soup!

Beautiful place. We renting kayaks and snorkels. We had to fly out of Barcelona at 10:00pm. We kayaked that morning and swam. Cleaned up and left around 1pm. And we're able to make our flight in time. Good morning experience.
