  • Walk of 3 coves just at the top! More kayaking is too well we loved! Tip for the more or less sporty 3 creeks for 1/2 day is more than enough! Really a great discovery at sea I recommend!

  • The calanques of Cassis, we must see them to become aware of their beauty! The boat ride seems inevitable, although relatively expensive, it allows a glimpse to the nearest of the creeks entering creeks to realize the clarity of the water. A few fish to see under the boat, with luck. For larger budgets, there are on private boat cruises that offer swimming breaks. For walkers, the access to the most beautiful coves for swimming is done on foot. But you want! When leaving Cassis, do not forget to take beautiful the Ridge Road, in the direction of la Ciotat, well worth the trip!

  • Discovered several years ago we wanted to see the calanques of Cassis. Of course less exceptional than those of Scandola, Cassis are also a very nice visit not to be missed. If the reservations at the port is well established, I regret not being able to book a small boat to visit the 6 or 9 creeks. I'll meet you on boats of up to 70 people, too large to approach the rocks.
