Scenic hikes

Hiking up and down and alongside the calanques is a beautiful experience. I would recommend taking bathing suits since we came across some nice beaches in the calanques.

Omg the views were to die for! My feet were about to drop off when I saw the views. Feet were quickly forgotten. It's amazing and you have to see it to believe it. Well worth a visit, if you're wearing good shoes!

I don't think you need another review to tell you how amazing this place is. TIPS: 1) Parking: Arrive early, and try to park near or at the public parking in Presqu'ile. This parking is 8Euros per day which might sound expensive at first (in April, don't know if it changes throughout the year), but overall it will be more... More

I spent a summer in the south of France and my day hiking les calanques was definitely one of the most memorable experiences. It's a must see! The hiking was great for all ages. If you want to see the three main calanques plan to spend a whole day hiking and exploring. The beauty is unreal.

Fabulous views out of this world, I've travelled a lot and rarely are there such fantastic views to see without houses, flats or hotels. Well done to France for keeping this so natural and beautiful. Definitely worth a visit - not to be missed.

We took the three calanques boat tour for 45 minutes. Ticket office / tours closed for lunch break so be aware of timing. The short trip is breathtaking to see the coastal rock formations from a boats perspective. Friendly guides explain in detail what you are looking at. Great opportunity to take pictures and enjoy the azur blue sea and... More

Many tracks to choose from with different levels and durations. All tracks are well tagged. However we'd recommend to buy a map (about 10€ in supermarket or paper stores) to be able to plan a track. Wear good and steady shoes for your safety as the paths are rocky. So you can even more enjoy walking around. On some routes... More

Take the three calanques tour. Forty five minutes and that's all you need. Azure blue water. Majestic cliffs. Photo opportunities around every bend. Even on a windy day this is a great sightseeing trip.

Very much enjoyed an hour cruise to the Calanques. So pleasant to be on the water exploring the beautiful inlets, clear water and dramatic cliffs. Well worth the price of a ticket.
