The Calanques of Cassis

So what are the Calanques?

The Calanques are limestone cliffs plunging into the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean between Cassis and Marseille. Carved out by the sea, they are the jewel of the Natural Park of Calanques, extending over more than 20 km of coastline.

The Calanques on foot

The Calanques, a hikers' paradise! If you enjoy walking outdoors in a beautiful environment, these walks are perfect for you! You won't be able to visit every calanque in a single day, but the walk is worth the trip. Before setting out, make sure you enquire about the difficulty level of certain walks. We also recommend that the best time for a hike to the Calanques is out of season, because the hills can sometimes be closed for their protection in the summer when the Mistral winds get too strong.
