Great place! You can easily go by walking from the gate, enjoying a cool trekking with an amazing view, or even, get to very closest parking area. Worth a lot!

It's true that you won't have the place to yourself and that it is difficult to get to, but sea kayaking to En Vau was one of the highlights of our trip to southern France. It was even more beautiful than the pictures. The beach...More

... too many people. The hiking down there is nice. The paths are made for good shoes because one way is gravel the other way has some small climbs. The calanque itself is beautiful but it is like they have a bus line down there,...More
