“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The Calanques are beautiful. Our 90 minute 5-Calanque boat ride was a delightful way to see these white limestone cliffs that tower over the azure water of the Mediterranean.

“Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Nice way to spend an hour. The views are incredible. The boat is comfortable. The trip out and back is short so your time is spent actually seeing the sites

It is so beautiful, it takes your breath away. You can picnic, hike, or just sit and gaze over the cove's natural beauty.

Definitely worth the hike. Or if you can, rent a boat (the book up quickly!) and visit the calanques. Absolutely beautiful

“Stunning if by sea or by land”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The nature walks in and around the calanques are amazing, and I was lucky enough to see it by private boat as well!! You can see the millions of years in the different rocks. Truly stunning at sunset, the colours are brilliant!
