    Les Calanques

    by kenningst Written Jul 24, 2009

    I would say 90% of tourist who comes to Casis does the Calanques as it is one of the main tourist spot. There is actually 2 ways to do it:

    1) By boat - you can do the boat ride along the 3 calanques. I don't remember how much it cost but then when you go to the pier, you will see boat operators offering boat tours.

    2) Hiking - take a hike to all the 3 calanques. Hike takes about 6 hours and you get to go down all the way to the beach area of the calanques and have a dip. Be ready for it. Wear a good hiking shoe, bring some food and water. There is hiking times that you must adhere to. Consult the tourist information centre for info as they will let you know the hiking conditions for the day and timing. I started mine early in the morning when its nice and cool.

    I did both the option and was a great experience but if you have only 1 chance to do it, I recommend the hiking route hands down!

    The Chateau (Castle)

    by kenningst Written Jul 24, 2009

    If you just up and across up on the hill top, you will find a the chateau. Apparently it used to be a tourist spot but was told that someone bought it up and now has become a private property. Not sure how true it is.

  • Boat tour

    by hl1967 Written Oct 21, 2003

    Take a boat tour around the little harbor for a glimpse of cool rock formations and crystal clear views into the Med.

    Also, have dinner at one of the many little restaurants lining the harbor; you won't be let down.

    Casino Barriere

    by GentleSpirit Written Aug 23, 2015

    If you have some extra money that you need to get rid of in Cassis, there is a large casino
    located just a few blocks off the harbor. (there is a bus stop directly in front of the casino)

    Hours are from 10 am to dawn

    Like all casinos everywhere the one at Cassis has the standard casino games, live entertainment and dancing, restaurants.

    Calanque from Cassis: Calanque d'En-Vaut... steep!

    by ptitetoile Written Jul 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Calanque is impressive because it is formed by very cliffs going straight in the water...that is why this calanque is visited by a lot of climbers.

    This is the panorama you can get of the Calanque d'En-Vaut! This is when following the red GR path after the Calanque de Port-Pin.
