9 reviews of Calanque d´En Vau

Fabulously conserved natural park

The 22km of cliffs which stretch between Marseille and Cassis are fabulously conserved natural park in the heart of the French Riviera. From Cassis, you can take a boat to the hidden beaches nestled among the cliffs, or you can take the multi-hour hike to arrive at the first (and most impressive) one called En Vau. There's nothing there, no food stands, no drinks. The boat drops people off and picks them up throughout the day and passes by various beaches. They do, however, prohibit hikers during the dry season due to the risk of fires, and in that case they can only arrive by boat.

Located between two high cliffs

Excellent

For me, it's the most beautiful cove between Cassis and Marseille. You can get there via an hour and a half walk through Port Miou and Port Pin. It's located between two high cliffs where the sea comes in and leads to a pebble beach. The water is clear and turquoise and you have a fascinating view of the pine forests overhead. It's also a great place for rock climbing. The only downside is that the cliffs sometimes block the sun.
