First thing to say is to check the calanques website before you go if you're visiting in summer as there is a risk of fires and you may get there to find it closed; as happened to us. We got there at 10 only to find that at 11 they were closing, so we only had an hour to look... More

We booked a four hour tour with l'Eden Boat (started from La Ciotat) and we absolutely loved it! Les Calanques is a paradise with incredibly blue and clear water. We were 12 people on the boat and it cost 65€ per person - well worth it! We stopped for a swim four times and even swam inside of a cave.... More

I've been living in the south of France for a while now and this was probably my favourite trip around the country so far. In the summer, the calanques are only open from 6am to 11am because of the risk of forest fires, so you need to get up early! The Calanque d'en Vau was a bit more than half... More

Fantastic walk in "Les Calanques de Cassis" - you have to go ! Take water and snack, good shoes, suncream, camera and your swimsuit ! Go early to avoid the crowd or get the best spot. And check tehy are open before going, they can close because of risk of fire. Enjoy !

We took both a boat ride and hiked a moderate trail trough the calanques. Would definitely recommend. I'm middle-aged and felt daunted by some of steep climbes, which I opted out of. Twenty-somethings wearing flip-flops hiked the trail, though, without incident. Rocks can be slippery, even when dry.

This is a must see attraction! We went for the 'three calanques' visit and paid about 15€ per person. The only minor point is that the tour guide only spoke French, but we were given translated guides, so it wasn't too bad. The landscape is worth going!

We were able to enjoy these beautiful views from a boat trip. Well worth the time. The boat trip took about an hour or so and visited several inlets along the coast.

These calanques are spectacular and young people jump and dive off them during the summer months, into the sea below. The rock formations are breathtaking, and the occasional beach is a beautiful place to relax, if you want to disembark. Or just dive off your boat and go swimming. :-)
