We did a short 45 minutes ride through choppy waters in the afternoon but well worth the experience to see huge calanques amidst serene beaches. This is a must-see if in Cassis or nearby areas.

Visiting the Calanques saved an otherwise disappointing trip to Cassis. This area is a natural wonder. We took a tour on a boat to go and see the numerous canyons or fjords that Stine cliffs and the sea have built over time. Some go deep...More

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.

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.
