  • We are not down, but the view from the top is spectacular. The detour after the Creek of Port pine.

  • Visited on a boat trip out of Marseille - was quite superb and the Calanques has to be seen - beautiful. Great place to spend time swimming and beaching!  more »
  • Beautiful Cove, from the top you can admire its azure water, downstairs it is well maintained and clean, but a bit cold because the Sun is hidden by the cliffs quickly. In addition, it is difficult to access, provide at least 1 h 30 walk with good shoes. We also appreciate to share its picnic with wasps. End of October there is a few people but it remains correct. For the adventurous, I recommend you to test!

  • Tough to get there, but worth the effort. Nice trekking route even though a bit scary if you come straight down from the hills. Better bring with you bottles of water (we had 3 with us and we were 2 people). You sweat a lot, get thirsty and there is no place near by where they can sell you tap water. Apart from that, the place is amazing and there aren't that many people around. You can even get there by kayaking which is even nicer
  • Definitely a scramble to reach but so worth the hike. Beautiful cove with unbelievably clear water. A magical place to arrive after a difficult descent. Watch the time you arrive as the steep cliffs means the sun disappears quickly.
  • Absolutely stunning! It’s a good 2-3 hour walk if you go the longest route (red/white then blue then red/white markings) but well worth it for the scenery and rewarding, chilly dip when you reach d’en Vau. We parked for free on Avenue Notre Dame. I’d recommend arriving early both for the parking and to get down to the beach by midday so that the sun is still shining down past the cliffs. Wear trainers/boots and take all the food & drink you need for the day. Regardless, go here - it’s beautiful
  • Amazing place! You arrive at the pebble beach after a beautiful hike through the canyons. The rock walls surrounding the beach are a perfect spot for climbers. In vacations period is very busy, full of people, kayaks and boats.
  • I highly recommend a boat trip to the calanques. Hiking will take a long time and it is very hot during the summer. The water is very clear and cold in the calanques. Great for snorkeling.
