The Goudes Calanques

In autumn, the calm and the colours of the Calanque des Goudes give the impression of being at the end of the world.

You can get there by car, or on foot along the Pointe-Rouge. An ideal walk that combines city and nature. All year round in Les Goudes, many restaurants and the famous bar ” Le 20 000 lieues” await you for a  relaxing moment facing the  sea.

The Callelongue Calanque

If you are still in shape, continue towards  the Calanque of Callelongue! Just after the village of The Goudes, enjoy this magnificent space for a great breath of fresh air. (Re)discover an authentic place with its small port and its fishermen’s huts.

The Marseilleveyre Calanque

The Calanque of Marseillveyre is easily accessible and very pleasant out of season, as it is very busy in the summer. In autumn you can reach it from the Port of Callelongue in just an hour! Take your picnic and stop on its pretty  beach to sunbathe all afternoon!

The Calanque of En Vau

The Calanque d’En Vau is much more appreciated out of season! From Cassis for a more sportive hike, or from ‘Col de la Gardiole’, simpler but just as long, the Calanque d’En Vau is a must -see. During the off-season, you can enjoy its beautiful little cove with steep cliffs quietly, with much less people than in summer!

In autumn, we advise you to take something to cover yourself, the shade come quickly!

The Calanque of Sugiton

If you want to go for a walk facing the sea, the Calanque of Sugiton is one of Marseille’s must-sees! It takes a little over an hour to reach the magnificent coves of this inlet! The descent to Sugiton offers a magnificent panorama of the coastline.

Autumn in the Calanques National Park

Outdoor shows, parties, historical reconstructions, natural walks… From 25  September  to 14 November  2021, enjoy 30 free outings to discover the cultural and natural heritage of our region.
