The Calanques are well worth a visit...go by boat to see as many as you can manage. Possible to trek overland also.

If you have a group of people (8 or more) contract for a private boat ride out to see these beautiful limestone formations. Water is very clear and cool and you can go for a refreshing swim if you have your own boat.

For those who enjoy hiking and swimming around in the sea the Calanques offer the opportunity to do both in the same day. Hike through beautiful scenery to reach the natural beaches and enjoy the surrounding views while you swim in the turquoize water.

I stayed in Cassis, France for a couple nights so I took the boat tour from Cassis. You can also take a tour from Marseilles. It's inexpensive and definitely worth it. There are options to visit 3, 5, 8, or 9 calanques. I did the...More

The Calanques can be visited the hard but virtuous way by walking, or, as we did, by boat. There are boat trips of various lengths (and prices) visiting three, five or eight of the creeks. In each one the sea is a beautiful turquoise colour,...More

We are planing on renting a small boat during our trip in July. Is it possible to moor the boat up anywhere or pull it up onto the beach so we can spend some time on the beach/swim/picnic? Thanks

You will find a lot of boats moored in the calanques, and a very small beach. Depending on the size of your boat, I would suggest dropping an anchor close to the beach.

Going to Cassis in early June and was looking for a boat ride or attraction where I will have time to stop and swim/relax on a beach/snorkel. I don't want to rush through the Calanques. Looking for the best way to be immersed in the area. Please help with any advice or recommendations! Thank you!

We will be in Cassis on March 29, 2017,Wednesday, and would like to take a boat tour to the Calanques. Where do we buy tickets and board? What is the schedule of boat departures and returns? Are there boat tours available in English? Planning to take a train from Marseille to Cassis, explore and take a boat tour to Calanques, then return to Marseilles to reboard cruise ship. Any tips or things I need to know to make this work? Any advice or info is much appreciated!
