"Les Calanques" Cassis Things to Do Tip by kenningst

Cassis Things to Do: 26 reviews and 45 photos


I would say 90% of tourist who comes to Casis does the Calanques as it is one of the main tourist spot. There is actually 2 ways to do it:

1) By boat - you can do the boat ride along the 3 calanques. I don't remember how much it cost but then when you go to the pier, you will see boat operators offering boat tours.

2) Hiking - take a hike to all the 3 calanques. Hike takes about 6 hours and you get to go down all the way to the beach area of the calanques and have a dip. Be ready for it. Wear a good hiking shoe, bring some food and water. There is hiking times that you must adhere to. Consult the tourist information centre for info as they will let you know the hiking conditions for the day and timing. I started mine early in the morning when its nice and cool.

I did both the option and was a great experience but if you have only 1 chance to do it, I recommend the hiking route hands down!
