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.
Note: Port-Pin is overcrowded in summer, particularly for swimming. Take public transport to Cassis when possible. The car parks are often full. Respect the natural environment: take your rubbish with you and do not create noise pollution.
