  • We have proficient three calanques from Cassis in a three-hour round trip. This was the Calanques d en-Vau outstanding beautiful and is recommended as picnic and beach resort. The steep descent into the Bay is somewhat challenging. It is steep, geröllig and zT rather exposed. In two or three places you must climb something about larger rocks / slip. But this is all feasible. Look at the photos themselves to, which I put in here. The descent takes about 20 minutes to the Bay. Back the way (the same) is much simpler. It is worth and is beautiful.

  • A sport to go hiking but the place is paradise. PS: the best spots are not on the official paths. Once at the callanque, feel free to climb to the left (qd we're facing the sea) for access to areas where quiet reigns.

  • The Creek of En Vau is accessible by then departmental D559 or is there a car park. It takes area 1:45-2: 00 for a hike with sacred climbs and descents sometimes with sacred drops everything safe. For fans or those familiar with hiking, walking is done at their own pace. Passage in a beautiful forest with a soothing calm. For in the end enjoy the Creek of En Vau, which has an amazing view. The turquoise is a color gradient to dazzle the eyes. Council; Gotta get there in the morning because fewer tourists and the Sun will be in the make vs. At 3 pm, the Sun hides behind the rocks. Too bad! Plan water, good shoes, Cap and to break the crust for hiking. You will not regret the hours of walking. Not ideal for children.

  • 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.
