  • We made the trip by boat, we can't take the boat that allows sea-bathing, lasting for almost 4 hours. We took the path less, and was our luck. Really has a great natural beauty, but it's not as attractive to the bath. This summer, there were so many boats transiting and the water was not as transparent as was in our research. But it has to meet.

  • We visited the Park from Luminy, where we arrived on the bus 21 from Castellane in Marseille (there is every 7 min approx and costs €1.9, it takes half an hour). From there there are enough routes to walk. We visited Sugiton and Morgiou and Belvedere viewpoint. It very reminiscent of the Costa Brava or Menorca. Some beautiful coves and rides for all ages according to tastes.

  • A truly magical spot! Sublime, the creeks is the place not to miss if you go in the corner, an incredible life, lots of quiet places with any opposite, a moment of total relaxation! No need to leave the France for a great holiday by bathing in turquoise water in the heart of the rocks carved by the waves of the Mediterranean

  • Amazing! You must visit these! Head to the tourist office to get a map of the town. It has the basic map of the trail on it. We went to to the 3 hour hike. We parked at "parking presqu'île" which was 8 euros for the day. It a 3 hour hike from there. We took a little longer because we took lots of photos. Some of the rocks on the first path can be very slippery. I wouldn't suggest it in the rain. We then took the red trail after we reached the beach in the first Calanque which is a long climb up. Then we got to a intersection at the top. If you take the path to the left it's the blue trail and has beautiful views as you make your way back to the beach. Nice loop. Make sure you have lots of water, and good shoes. Definitely suggest parking as close to the entrance as you can. Instead of parking in town.
  • Such an amazing place. Truly incredible views. Make sure you bring your own water if you go walking/hiking.
  • The park provides a specular view of Cassis and the surrounding landscape. It was a perfect place to take photos and enjoy the sunset with that special someone.
  • Lovely break from crowded an urbanized Cote d'Azur. Worth a day hike
  • A lot of natural beauty and it good for hiking on the coast of France.
