The Calanques stands between Marseille - Callelongue and Cassis, a ten-mile area. On foot or by sea, they offer a unique landscape, of contrasting colors, an incredible flora and a precious fauna... it's a unique place.

The massif is composed of many steep creeks where the limestone, which was cut 10 000 years ago when the sea level rose, is mixed with the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

The creeks most recognized for their beauty are those of Sugiton, En-Vau where the red rock and pine trees overlook the clear waters, and Port-Miou where small boats moored peacefully.

It is tempting to swim in clear waters but be aware because water is often cooler than on the beaches as the cliffs fall steeply to the depths and do not form a coastal plateau where the water could be heated.

The Calanques is still a very wild area, only a few huts cling and precious animal species live there, so it is important to protect them. To do this, just follow some simple rules:

  • Do not leave any garbage on site

  • Do not camp, smoke, light fires,

  • Do not touch the plants,

  • Do not leave the marked trails,

  • At sea, respect the regulations for navigation

  • Moor preferably in the sandy areas,

  • Respect regulations on fishing.

Hiking trails in the Calanques Massif are numerous. Choose to hike during the winter season because in summer access to the Calanques is often closed due to fire risk.

Several companies offer tours to explore the creeks by boat or on foot. You may find all the information on the Cassis Tourist Office website.
