Before heading out to visit the Calanques National Park, make sure you are prepared and read about good conduct and regulations here.
The calanque is open to visitors all year round. The surrounding hills are also open to visitors, except when closed due to fire danger.
The park is open from 1 April to 30 September from 8am to 8pm and 1 October to 31 March from 9am to 6pm (contact the municipality of La Ciotat for more information).
Note: Mugel calanques are overcrowded in summer, particularly for swimming. When possible, take public transport to La Ciotat. Car parks are often full. Respect the natural environment: take your rubbish with you and do not create noise pollution.
