From Marseille to Cassis, over a stretch of 20km, the Calanques are a set of jagged limestone inlets carved out along the coast. With each hidden inlet you'll discover the breathtaking waters, intensely turquoise, caressing the white limestone cliffs that sink into the sea.
Sailboats vie for position in the inlets, sun worshippers lie in the quiet coves, kids jump into the waters and swim back to shore.
Though you can explore the Calanques by boat, the best way to discover the region is by foot: where in between each calanque you'll be enchanted by the strong fragrance of pine needles and aromatic herbs baking under the Provençal sun.
When in Marseille make sure to try the "Bouillabaisse", the regional specialty made of slow cooked fresh fish in a broth, served as a feast.
