A wonderful place for a walk and swim. Best to go in the morning when the sun is still shining onto the beaches.

Getting to Cassis by train from Marseiile is quick and quite cheap. But then your problems start. The rail station named 'Cassis' should be called "A station somewhere near Cassis which requires you to leg it'. On arrival you do indeed see a Taxi space...More

We went on the 5 Clanques tour, took about 90 minutes round trip. In general you can't move around on the boat much so suggest you sit in front or on starboard ( right ) side.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone. A chance to see the amazing fjord-like coastline between Marseille and Cassis.

This boat trip took us round the coast and up into the inlets along the coast. All very scenic with cliffs rising straight up.

Very beautiful but the walk to en Vau is quite tough! It is a very step and rocky climb down to the water. But worth it

As others have said, there is a kiosk just along from the tourist office, on the right hand side of the harbour as you look out to sea. It is one company and various boat owners seem to work for them. You can choose... More
