The Calanques of Marseille


A unique natural area

A Calanque is a very special geological formation of limestone rock. They are large rocky coves that form a narrow indentation entering the land. The Massif des Calanques is a highly protected national park, stretching some 20 km from Marseille to Cassis, and numbering no fewer than 26.

Exceptional underwater flora

Fauna and flora are omnipresent in the Parc National des Calanques massif. It's so diverse that it can be compared to an underwater garden. You'll come across octopus, anemones, sea urchins, sars and mussels, as well as sublets, oblades and even groupers.
