Calanques & Cassis yacht charter

A yacht rental to the Calanques in Marseille invites the curious and adventurous charterers. This itinerary off the beaten track will take you to one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the south of France.

5-day tour

A few miles away from Marseille lies the hidden paradise of the Calanques. Accessible only by boat or with good hiking shoes, these beautiful inlets are carved into white limestone and boast crystal-clear waters. Magnificent cliffs rise up and line a turquoise sea, offering visitors a show of rare beauty. Chartering a yacht is the ideal way to explore the Calanques. The landscapes are indeed even more striking seen from the sea and you can easily visit the coves one after the other. Exploring Cassis makes a great addition to your yacht charter in the Calanques. Cassis is a very picturesque fishing village, much more pleasant than many other crowded towns of the French Riviera. And it is also one of the best places to try the famous Provencal fish soup called Bouillabaisse.
