The majestic Calanques (fjord-like geographical structures have been carved out of the mountain and limestone cliffs over millennia by nature. A "must visit" experience for anyone visiting Marseille. Ferries live from Vieux Port

This trail is extremely beautiful. It's about an 1hr walk. Not advisable to do it on a very hot day as the the walk is very steep. Travel light in order to picnic at the beach.

Absolutely beautiful piece of nature! I walked there from the bus station - perfect walking length - and once you get there you can have a nice relaxing swim in the ocean!

The place is worth visiting due to its natural beauty, however it is not the most scenic out of the calanques. It is accessible by car, however the road is quite twisty and narrow (in some places only one car can pass). Only a few...More

Thoroughly enjoyable walk to viewing point. We didn't descend but nevertheless we were 'wowed' by the experience. Found useful tips for getting there on previous reviews but were left with concerns about how easy we ( a couple in our 60s) would find it. We...More

Sormiou is perhaps one of the most beautiful calanques along the coast. There is a small beach with bars, plus a small village overlooking the sea. Wonderful.
