You can catch a train from Gare St. Charles to Cassis almost once an hour (except on weekends). They run from tracks (Voie) 3 and 5 which are along side of Voie A. Get tickets from a machine if you have a credit card with a chip in it, or from the ticket office just beyond the head of Voie... More

Visited the Calanques on our honeymoon. We rented a boat from Loco Bateau (horrible). The boat we rented had a hole in it, so they gave us a little dinghy. It was a perfect, calm day, but the wake from the large tour boats and yachts, along with the swells on the open water made it very nerve-racking. When we... More

Blue lagoon movie kind of perfect setting. very clean, almost equaly cold....but such a beauty for the eyes that you don't even need to swim in it to feel happy. A must for whoever visits the Calanques.

These natural beauties are definitely worth the boat trip. We visited eight calanques on a fairly calm day and really enjoyed the trip. I would like to return to swim in some of these secluded spots.

When visiting Cassis we took a "5 Calanques" boat trip at the harbor. We thought a 1 hour trip would be fine because we were travelling with children. It turned out amazing. The kids loved the boat trip and we were amazed by the beauty of the Calanques. It was really impressive.

Cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this place is, so much so I am going to stay nearby on my next holiday. Water is crystal clear, the formations are beathtaking. Just a completely different aspect seen of it.

A beautiful natural wonder, these limestone cliffs can be experienced several ways: hiking (although trails can be closed or limited early-morning hours in summer due to fire risk; check at the large & helpful tourist office in Cassis); kayaking (rented at the beach in Cassis or, if you have a car, at the first Calanque Port Miou); boat (private boat...

We have heard the reputation of Clanques before. It is the most beautiful place on earth that you should do before you die! Its breathtaking view is so amazing but make sure you check the time with tourist office. We were there when it's closed due to high risk of fire. At last, we took a 1 hour boat trip... More

Cassis is so beautiful! We rented a small boat (they accepted our Canadian boating licenses as license) and traveled to a nearby inlet, climbed some rock faces, did some cliff jumping, and sun bathed. All in all GO TO CASSIS!

I had heard about the Calanques for years and finally decided to go. It is beautiful, and we took a short boat ride (ask for the electric boat - much quieter, no fumes), and it was very nice. It was not as awe inspiring as I expected, but still worth the trip. The best part of my Cassis vacation was... More
