This magic place deserves a few days.... There two things that you must do here; 1 - rent a small boat and visit every Calanques, the view from the ocean is unique, take a bottle of a nice champagne with you, sure it will be unforgettable. 2 - Walk to the calanques near the cliffs, find a nice beach and...

A fantastic boat tour. You've a variety to choose from, but opt for a longer trip as you won't be disappointed; each creek is different. Narrative was good and the boats are a decent size but not too big to be in-personable. Take suncream even in March if sunny!

This was the most unbelievable hike I've ever made. It had some considerably difficult slopes but if you have a standard physical prep and don't get lost, you should be fine. SUPERB views.

The hike around the coastline from Cassis is not easy with some quite steep rocky paths, but the pay off in scenery is worth it. Quite unique and definitely spectacular. I was surprised by the number of walkers in thongs or sandals. Practical exercise or hiking shoes are a must, as are swimming costumes in summer, for a cooling dip... More

Definitely worth the trip! The view from the top is spectacular. In the summer, boat trips are also available. We could not experience this, since we were there in February.

The location of Calanques is actually can be easily accessible by bus in Marseilles. Just take bus 21 to the terminal station near Luminy and talk a 30 mins walk and you will see the gorgeous view of the blue sea and mountain. You can decide to take a walk to the observatory deck, climb up the mountain or go... More

The Calanques are amazing and they go from la Ciotat down towards Marseilles, you can also get boat tours out to them from La Ciotat and Cassis,bring good walking gear as they are quite rocky and hilly,and plenty of water in summer time as it gets very hot
