We saw this park from both a boat and a scenic drive that toured the park and the fishing village of Cassis.

We toured the Calanques National Park and the City of Cassis as part of a Viking Ocean shore excursion. The national park features geological wonders and Cassis is a mildly interesting fishing village.

We choose to take the shorter, 45 minute or so, excursion at the last minute out of Cassis. It was worth it. If you have the time, do it. The ferry took us to 3 locals bays/inlets. Each where beautiful and unique. There was a...More

My friends and I rented Kayaks from the nearby town and paddled our way over. Was a bit of a challenge as going at a fast pace you reach the various "calanques" in about 45 minutes but it was all worth it. There are stunning...More

Getting to Cassis by train from Marseiile is quick and quite cheap. But then your problems start. The rail station named 'Cassis' should be called "A station somewhere near Cassis which requires you to leg it'. On arrival you do indeed see a Taxi space...More

We went on the 5 Clanques tour, took about 90 minutes round trip. In general you can't move around on the boat much so suggest you sit in front or on starboard ( right ) side.

Wij waren met de trein en hebben in Cassis de bus genomen naar de haven maar je kan ook via Marseilles dit doen. In Marseille kan je verschillende bussen nemen om dit ook te voet te doen

As others have said, there is a kiosk just along from the tourist office, on the right hand side of the harbour as you look out to sea. It is one company and various boat owners seem to work for them. You can choose... More

Walking in August (6 Replies)
My husband and I are flying to Marseille in August and will have four days (with a car) before we drive to the Cote d'Azure. We are keen hill walkers and would ideally like to spend one or two days walking. Where is a good place to walk? The Luberon? Mourre Negre? The Calanques? Or will paths be closed in August?

Thanks Kathy and datthecoast - I work in a school and so am tied to school holidays! We are walking in Scotland this May half-term holiday but it sounds like that would be a good time for walking in France another year.
