Take a boat ride to a few of the Calanques. We visited 3. Limestone mountains surround turquoise blue waters. It is unbelieveable. Wish we had more time here. We would have loved to be able to swim. Since we were a group of 11, we were able to get a boat just for us. It is best described as miniature... More

Our cruise stopped in Marseille and we booked ahead by Smart Cruise Tours since we are a group of 10 people including 4 kids. Our day trip included a city tour of Marseille, then Cassis and the Calanques. Both were really great the guides were amazing, had a lot of history, information and were very friendly. Highly highly recommend a... More

The views are worth the walk! I can't wait to return to spend more time there and hike down to the water to swim. We walked from the end point of bus 21 to the viewpoint- about a 30 minute walk.

This was my favorite part of our shore excursion from the port of Toulon. The water and the Calanques were beautiful. They're very different from anything we have in the US. Two pieces of advice, get your tickets early because many of the trips were sold out when we purchased ours, and get to your boat early to get a... More

I started from Cassis center city and first walked to Port Miou which is about 30min walk. From there I hiked to Port Pin (about 30-40 min hike) Beautiful views all around. When you get to Port Pin there is a small beach where you can cool off after the hike. All together it was a 4h fun activity day.... More

We accessed the Calanques from Cassis and only walked to the first two. Still, it was a wonderful walk, only about an hour from town, and bathing in the ocean at the second Calanque was great!

We walked to Port Miou from Cassis, having bought a picnic lunch, on a perfect day. Next day we took the boat to visit 5 calanques, tho lots of people were walking on a well defined track.might be very busy in July/August.

Calanques are scenic inlets in the Cassis area. Accessible on foot (hiking often required) they are picturesque and pretty. For some reason they were also freezing to swim in. Don't be a fool like me and bring proper walking shoes if you plan to reach one!

Gosh, the Calanques wowed me at every turn! My friends took a hike (the pictures looked great) to the second calanque from Cassis - very treacherous they said. Due to a bruised foot, I had to take the boat tour from the yellow kiosk of Cassis (closer to the east side of the port) to see the white cliffs, so... More

The Calanques is a national park that worth a visit, we went by boat which is a different experience but it can be done walking. There are several boat rental places in the port and you can spend half or full day.
