  • Just wonderful, I never get tired of the creeks, our country has treasures! I recommend to rent a boat without a license it is even better to discover these landscapes.

  • If you are into hiking, get a proper map from Tourist Information Office, with scale 1:15000, then jump into underground and change at Pont Ronde Du Prado for a bus 21 (or Jet Bus 921J) to Luminy. Fro...  more »
  • It's always interesting to see how are other regions in the world and the National Park of calnques in various portions of its extension not only by boat.

  • An awesome place for a quiet getaway. If you don't go in main season, it's possible to find a private little bay where you can enjoy the crystal clear water. Don't forget sunscreen, it's basically impossible to find shade on the island
  • So beautiful. Weather was great even in November - sunny and not too warm.
  • Awesome place, beautiful cristal clear water. Problem is that is a little chilly. And the access is not that simple.
  • Beautiful natural park in South France with good roads to drive and plenty of look outs to stop and take pictures at. Highly recommended while in south France
  • 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.
