In his “trilogiemarseillaise”, Marius, the main character was torn betweenhis beloved one, Fanny, on shore and his love for the sea.

Then, looking at the moored boats, youwill, like Marius, feel this uncontrollable feeling you have to sail andenjoy the sea.Whether on earth or sea, you will always find a “marseillais” to talkto you about the history of the port: a story about fish for sure, butalso love, travel and discoveries.

  39. 39. 77There is a famous link between Marseille and the picturesque cityof Cassis; over 20km you can enjoy the limestone cliffs buried in theclear water of the Mediterranean Sea. The area, whose completesurface is 5000 hectares, has been classified as a protected site since1975 and can be visited only by foot or by boat.Magic and steep, the Calanques are the favorite place of tourists.While they are difficult to access thanks to narrow paths, theCalanques provide the pleasure of swimming and a stunning viewof the area. People who go there have to deserve the beauty of thelocation: a long walk is required before one reaches the Calanques.Rock climbing is a popular activity throughout the area due to themany cliffs that surround the site.Goudes-calanquesIn the middle of a mind blowing setting of highcliffs, Sugiton’s calanque is made up of two peb-bled beach coves. Opposite, a characteristic rockyislet emerges, named “the rocher du torpilleur”(rock of the torpedo boat) because it looks like awarship.Sormiou is the widest and most accessible calan-que. At the end of the cove, there is a sandy beachwith cottages. You will also find a small port andthe famous restaurant “Le Lunch,”where you can eatwith your feet in the sea.SugitonSormiouCalanquesACCES : bus N°21, then one hour walk awayACCES : bus N°23, then 40 mins walk away
  40. 40. 79Goudes-calanquesIt is the most famous, the most spectacular and themost grandiose of the calanques. En Vau is locatedbehind abrupt and jagged white cliffs. A specialplace for climbing, the sea is incredibly clear andspans the entire palette of blue and green.It is possible to sail from the Vieux Port to the Calanques, withseveral circuits of various length. Some go around the Frioul islandsand others directly into the Calanques, with a stop for some bathingin the turquoise water. Audio comments are available in severallanguages for every circuit. Lastly, if you wish to enjoy a cruise aloneor with friends, boats can be rented for private parties.Les Goudes still looks like an undiscovered piece of the world. It isa small fishermen’s village which has kept all of its authenticity. Itsname comes from the fact that to reach this area, you must takea road full of bended curves. You can easily find nice bars andrestaurants, but don’t be surprised to find huge crowds once thesummer arrives: this is one of the most visited places in Marseille.En Vaugoudesvisit by the sea1 hour to 3.30 hour cruiseACCEsS : from cassis, follow the calanque indicationGoudes Marinacar : Corniche towards pointe rouge, then madrague de montredonBus : n°19, leaving the prado roundabout then n°20 from madragueACCESs
