  • Calanques are geological formations, deep gorges, ancient estuary, formed by 12 millennia ago after vanishing glacier. The visible part of the Calanques-Cove, surrounded by almost sheer limestone white cliffs rising vertically out of the sea. Are they from the suburb of Marseille to the small town of Cassis over 20 kilometers along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. The highest point is Mount kalanok Puget, whose height is 563 metres above sea level. Now these places with an endless sea, sharp rocks, crystal clear water blue color different shades, quiet backwaters and impregnable Islands nature preserved in its original form, invariably attract many tourists. Calanques are declared national natural park.

  • The Tower of the calanques is sure to do without hesitation but when we announced an electric boat ("the scoundrel"), who deserve it don't make no noise no unpleasant diesel odours and that in fact you the immense part of the ride with the esse propulsion NCE, you're a little disappointed. Of course, the sea was a little trained and this prevented it seems the use of electric propulsion. Then the silence in the calanques Yes but a few minutes and once you get out, it's the noise and the usual smells that take over again. Too bad.

  • A true paradise for hikers, of multiple circuits and starting points. Practice in all seasons but prefer Spring and fall.
