It is possible to cycle to all the entrances of the Calanques National Park. Some itineraries have bike paths, such as the whole trip from from Place Castellane to the Luminy campus (bike racks). Or hire a bike from the Marseille municipality self-service bike system to reach the southernmost point from docking stations in Pastré (docking stations no.8313 and 913).

By car

Driving to the Calanques is not recommended as parking is rare and unguarded. Take the usual precautions: lock your car, leave no valuable objects inside or visible.

Roads to Sormiou, Morgiou and Callelongue villages are closed to motorised vehicles as soon as the weather improves and throughout summer. La Gardiole track and track to Cap Croisette are now permanently closed.
