We hiked up in Cassis to picnic. Also took a boat tour from the port in Cassis. It is so beautiful and pictures don’t do it justice. You can hike, swim, kayak, and climb! You can make it a leisurely walk or an difficult hike...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.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone. A chance to see the amazing fjord-like coastline between Marseille and Cassis.

We opted for the 8 Calanque boat trip which was fabulous. We also drove to the La Persq'lle car park and walked around the Petit Prince route which only took around 40 minutes with lots of photo stops. The Petit Train from Cassis also comes...More

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
