We decided to take the 5 calanque trip which took just over an hour. You book from the hut close to where all the boats depart from and the ticket tells you which pier to wait at. The boat was very busy and obviously the commentary was in french but we were provided with a paper version which was all... More

Exist 3 ways to see Calanques - hike, take a cruise boat tour, rent a kayak or motorboat at Cassis port. Before you go (if you choose to hike) ask local TI if Calanques are "open". If they are "closed" (for some reason - weather etc) the only way to see the Calanques is by boat trip or kayak. We... More

The views are beautiful, the paths well way-marked, and you can get away from the crowds even in mid summer, if you are prepared to walk a bit. The few "beach" areas are very busy though. Some stunning cliff scenery, dotted with pine trees. Check the fire risk online before you travel - if it is very hot and or... More

The calanques, the first one Port Miou and the second one, Port Pin can reached by boat or by walking (suggested). You can appreciated the smell of the Pines, the White stones (the same You find in the street of Cassis) the blu and cold sea. Consider that even in August the sea water is cold, so You can't stay...

Even at age 60+, we found the Calanques so beautiful, so compelling, so amazing that we slowly walked all 3 of them. Turquoise water, rocky cliffs, tiny crescent beaches kept us going up and down the miles of scenery so perfect they look photoshopped. We were kept company by grandmas with canes, bouncy kids, athletic rock climbers, and families just... More

Boat tour was outstanding with a great tour guide. We were able to see a National Geographic Top 100 Beach and learn about history and culture at the same time. I understand why people hike for hours to get to the beaches!

We took the 5 calanque boat trip that lasted around 75minutes. Boats go regularly and it's easy to get tickets but not cheap; it cost us €90 for a family of four. Well worth it though-- simple trip and not interrupted by narration which left us to enjoy the scenery. Don't forget to take water with you...it's hot and you... More
