Marseille: les Calanques

Impressive rocks

Marseille can be pretty hot during summer, but we found the ideal way to cool down a bit. We went on a boat trip to the calanques, a series of rocks between Marseille and Cassis. Just go to the old harbour where you can purchase your tickets. There are several options: a tour with just a few people, tours that include sunbathing in one of the calanques … More info can be found at the Marseille website. We took a tour that didn’t go ashore, and just had a look into the calanques. Nonetheless it was impressive: the blue water, the jagged rocks, the peaceful calanques … There are also tours which include sunbathing, but the boyfriend isn’t exactly fond of sunshine.

Sheer bliss at the calanques

The Mediterranean was pretty wild the day we took the trip, which I didn’t expect at all (people being sick, and we had to go inside the boat because the waves were too big). That was really cool 🙂
