Overview

Créé le 18 avril 2012, le Parc national des Calanques est le 10e parc national français et le seul périurbain en Europe, à la fois terrestre et marin. Situé au cœur de la métropole Aix-Marseille-Provence, ce monument naturel comprend des massifs littoraux découpés de calanques, plusieurs îles, ainsi qu’un vaste espace marin qui, avec le canyon de la Cassidaigne, inclut l’un des plus riches canyons sous-marins de Méditerranée en termes de biodiversité. Situés dans l’une des zones les plus arides et ventées de France, ces paysages spectaculaires abritent près de 140 espèces terrestres animales et végétales protégées et 60 espèces marines. C’est cet ensemble unique d’écosystèmes et de spécificités culturelles que le Parc national a pour mission de protéger et valoriser pour les résidents, usagers, visiteurs et les générations futures. Superficie cœur marin : 43 500 ha. Cœur terrestre : 8 500 ha. Les activités proposées sur ce site ne sont pas des recommandations de l’établissement.

I love to go to the Calanques for a walk or to just enjoy the view. You have to see it at least once when in Marseille.

Whenever I'm staying in Marseille with a friend, we always go for a walk in The Calanques, setting off from the university site and walking up to some incredible viewpoints. It is a must for any visit to Marseille or the surrounding area.

A must when travelling to Marseille. Have a very good pair of hicking shoes and enjoy the landscape. We went in December on a very sunny day and it was not crowded.

Lots of wonderful walks and hikes possible, with great views of cliffs, sea, heaths. You can pack a picnic and be gone for a while day, if you so wish, and if you choose a less obvious walk, you'll hardly see a person all day....More

It's very rocky and steep. On the boat trip you can sit below deck but it's hard to stay inside with all of the beauty around you. The Calanques themselves are tough walking terrain, and I wouldn't bring a baby there. The... More

If you rent a car and tour on your own trecking is possible. When taking the boat trip there's no possibility to walk around, neither for dogs nor humans!
