Overview

Créé le 18 avril 2012, le Parc national des Calanques est le 10e parc national français et le seul périurbain en Europe, à la fois terrestre et marin. Situé au cœur de la métropole Aix-Marseille-Provence, ce monument naturel comprend des massifs littoraux découpés de calanques, plusieurs îles, ainsi qu’un vaste espace marin qui, avec le canyon de la Cassidaigne, inclut l’un des plus riches canyons sous-marins de Méditerranée en termes de biodiversité. Situés dans l’une des zones les plus arides et ventées de France, ces paysages spectaculaires abritent près de 140 espèces terrestres animales et végétales protégées et 60 espèces marines. C’est cet ensemble unique d’écosystèmes et de spécificités culturelles que le Parc national a pour mission de protéger et valoriser pour les résidents, usagers, visiteurs et les générations futures. Superficie cœur marin : 43 500 ha. Cœur terrestre : 8 500 ha. Les activités proposées sur ce site ne sont pas des recommandations de l’établissement.

Come here for a day out and you won't be disappointed. From wherever you are get the metro to Rond-Point. Buy a 24 hour ticket for €5.20 as this will also cover your bus fair. Get the bus 22 to the end of the route...More

We took the boat at the corner of the « vieux port » to see the « essentials and refreshing / cold swim » tour and enjoyed the stunning views. Nice 3h30 cruise!
