We took a boat tour, but unfortunately the boat only took us to 3 calanques do to windy weather (otherwise, you can choose between tours visiting 3,5,8 or 9 calanques). We then took a hiking trip to the beach at the third calanque from a parking spot at midpoint between Cassis and Marseilles - about 1 hour walking down and... More

We did the 10am sailing of 9 calanques at 27 euros each. Stunning scenery. Different perspective from walking them ( which is equally fantastic). There was some commentary from the skipper but was in french; this didn't matter as it was still amazing. I would have liked to dive off the boat and swim but this isn't possible with this... More

I was on a boat trip on a lovely day. The Sirocco was a lovely boat and the captain and his mate were very friendly and gave us bottles of water whilst the navigated the Calanques and described what we were seeing.

This was probably our favourite thing we did while staying in Cassis. We hiked the trail from Cassis to the first calanque, port Miou which was lovely, then carried on the more challenging hike to port pin. Beautiful! Check online before going to check opening times, sometimes the trails are closed due to forest fire risk. The hike probably took... More

Walking from the port to the first and second Calanques is achievable in a few hours round trip and offers great views back to the cape and of the Calanques. There is a sandy beach at the second Calanque from which it is possible to swim. Access down to the beach is a little slippery and awkward, so wear good... More

We were lucky to take a short cruise the day we chose to see the Calanques, as the 45-minute tour was the only one available due to high winds and waves. The following day, no boats went out, so if you don't want to miss the boat tour, check the weather for the best option. To be honest, 45 minutes... More

A fantastic and must do activity by boat depending on the weather conditions. Summer time here brings hordes of tourists and locals alike, also with it forest fires, many parts of the calanques are closed in the summer months to avoid accidents, since the rocks are also famous with hikers and rock climbers. These calanques can be experienced by boat,... More

It's an amazing program! The Calanques are so beautiful!! I arrived the city very early in the morning, had a walk at the port and took a boat to visit them. I just loved what I saw! It's also possible to hike them - wich probably offers great views.

Although the weather was blustery, and eventually it rained, the visit was fun. Good hike along the trails, followed by an excellent restaurant ($$$). Got lots of photos of spray along the rocky shoreline as well ad the sailboats. (Always a fun subject for me). There are more advanced trails for the young at heart, as well as sedate strolls.

Pretty and unique geological spectacle interesting cliffs and inlets lovely clear water. Was closed due to fire danger and wind but still saw much of it.
