Getting here from Cassis

Located in the heart of the national park, the charming village of Cassis is the ideal starting point for visiting the west of the Calanques range and the Cap Canaille area. We recommend alternative modes of transport to driving as parking is very difficult.

By coach:

  • From Marseille: line M08 (Marseille-Carnoux-Cassis) with the Marcouline bus service.
  • From La Ciotat: ligne M05 (Carnoux-Cassis-La Ciotat) with the Marcouline bus service.

Getting to the Calanques

By bus: line M01 between the railway station and town centre, just a 30-minute walk from the entrance to the national park near the Cassis peninsula and Port-Miou calanque.

On foot: the entrance to the national park near the Cassis peninsula and Port-Miou calanque is just 30 minutes on foot from Cassis town centre. The Port-Pin calanque is a further 15 minutes, and En-Vau calanque a further 30 minutes. Note: the climb to En-Vau calanque is steep and can be difficult, particularly in summer. Prepare your trip before heading out. Click here for more information.

By car: Traffic can be very dense, particularly in summer. Avoid taking your car to the town centre and the peninsula car park. We recommend the Gorguettes free park-and-drive with a shuttle to the entrance of the national park (Cassis peninsula and Port-Miou calanque).
