Les Calanques

A "calanque" is an inlet, cove or bay, and the ones you find outside Marseille are no less than mesmerising. The impressive limestone formations and the turquoise waters make for an excellent retreat. There are a wide range of sporting activities available here, as well as plenty of relaxation for the weary.

Do & See

Marseille is an urban cultural hot spot, a French city with historical and maritime museums, lovely architecture and beautiful nature in the form of parks and a stunning beach. Visit the main harbour and take a stroll around the Abbaye Saint Victor, explore the narrow streets of the old quarter, or make time for one of the beaches not too far from the city centre.
