Calanque des Fours France

A series of coves, steep cliffs, beaches and valleys on the coast of Provence, France, Calanque des Fours is a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike. Located between Marseille and Cassis, the area boasts wild terrain, quaint fishing villages, a wonderful blue sea and spectacular lime stone cliffs. The walk along the coast from Cassis to Marseille is spectacular and can be done in one day at a fast pace. Do not miss the nearby If Castle, a small island made famous in the novel of Alexandre Dumas, the Comte of Monte-Cristo. Activities are wide-ranging and include swimming, boating, fishing, birding, climbing, and hiking.
