The Calanques, a national park, are Provencal fjords with crystal clear green water. Framed by white limestone cliffs and the deep blue of the ocean, secret beaches and coves await discovery. Catch a boat from the port (they leave every half hour) and hop off in a Calanques where you can enjoy a picnic, the sun and a spot of diving or snorkelling. A renowned diving area, complete with Roman wrecks, lies half an hour's boat ride out to sea. Alternatively you may prefer to take advantage of the world famous rock climbing nearby or just enjoy a peaceful stroll along the water's edge.
