Blue lagoon movie kind of perfect setting. very clean, almost equaly cold....but such a beauty for the eyes that you don't even need to swim in it to feel happy.
A must for whoever visits the Calanques.

These natural beauties are definitely worth the boat trip. We visited eight calanques on a fairly calm day and really enjoyed the trip. I would like to return to swim in some of these secluded spots.

When visiting Cassis we took a "5 Calanques" boat trip at the harbor. We thought a 1 hour trip would be fine because we were travelling with children. It turned out amazing. The kids loved the boat trip and we were amazed by the beauty of the Calanques. It was really impressive.

Cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this place is, so much so I am going to stay nearby on my next holiday. Water is crystal clear, the formations are beathtaking. Just a completely different aspect seen of it.

A beautiful natural wonder, these limestone cliffs can be experienced several ways: hiking (although trails can be closed or limited early-morning hours in summer due to fire risk; check at the large & helpful tourist office in Cassis); kayaking (rented at the beach in Cassis or, if you have a car, at the first Calanque Port Miou); boat (private boat rental or tour boat). I kayaked to the first Calanque; going further was prohibited that due to high winds, hiked a bit, and took the tour boat to 5 Calanques. All modes were fantastic! Boating will give you the full impression of the cliff's mass and height and enjoy being on the water. I believe there are also tour boats that depart from Marseille, although I found the stay in charming Cassis well worth the time. Not to be missed if you are anywhere near the area!
