We did this fresh off the TMB, looking for a different sort of scenery. It did not disappoint. We hiked in from Agay, so our hike was a lot longer than just the Cap du Dramont. Going clockwise, the first third of the trail was rocky and challenging terrain, but had beautiful sea views. Make sure you go to the top. The rest of the hike was pretty smooth gravel path. Excellent way to spend a couple of hours. The trail itself probably only took us an hour to complete, including some picture and rest stops.

Calonque en vau was amazing with crystal clear, blue water and a beautiful view. The rocks are *very* slippery in places. Parts of this trail are difficult. If you venture to the left in the beginning of the hike, it is closed but the signs have been knocked down. We went around them. This part of the trail is doable but you need to take care. Bring plenty of water. The views are spectacular. Come early and bring a suit for a swim. The calonques get crowded by mid morning.

lots of variety with the view. highlight of stumbling across (almost literally) some goats by the chapel. gorgeous route. recommend getting there early though as on the way back it was fairly busy.

Very good day

Superb to go, along the gorge, then a passage in an almost mystical forest where the trees are hairy by the foam! The small hook on the crests worth the detour, I met a magnificent raptor taking the ascendants. The return is a little more banal and without really points of view. Impossible to get lost, and at 8am it's just you and nature. Divine !

Easy hiking while enjoying breathtaking landscapes!

As much in Giens, the W part of the peninsula is more beautiful, as in Porquerolles out of the boat it is better to go to the East. To the south, the coast is cut into the rock, extremely wild. To the north the two magnificent beaches of Courtade and Notre-Dame. And in the center, the museum of the Carmignac Foundation is worth the detour. If you have the chance to sleep on the island you will discover a treasure that is revealed once the horde of visitors will have regained the continent.

Part of the trail interesting although less wild and steep than the W part of the peninsula. Tip: Do not make a round trip, arrange to make a loop. Leave to 1500 m on the macadam. If you run, choose your schedule because this trail is very busy in season.

Walk along the beach. Nice to discover places. Very simple.

Couldn't get there. Road becomes narrow dirt track usable by 4x4 only. We came through le Ponteil.

I’m a novice hiker, and my friend was only slightly more experienced. We hiked this trail counterclockwise in sneakers (Nike Free Runs & Nike AirMax) yesterday. We started at the trailhead a little before 8am, arrived at d’en Vau (Calanque 3) at around 9:45am, left at 11:15am, and returned to the trailhead around 1:30pm. The final descent into d’En Vau has many large smooth rocks that can be very slippery, followed by a long but less steep pathway of loose stones, so we took it slow but it wasn’t undoable even with shoes with slippery bottoms. The most difficult part is honestly the midday/afternoon heat, so the earlier you start this hike the better. That said, d’En Vau is completely worth the effort – absolutely gorgeous. The beach started getting swarmed with kayakers/boat tourists at around 10:30, so get going early to beat the crowd! Would recommend 3 litres of water per person.

Gorgeous. Bring towel, book, swimming goggles, and maybe even water shoes. You’ll want to make it to Calanque 3; much less crowded and really beautiful. I recommend to do the hike counterclockwise so that you are pleasantly surprised when you arrive to Calanque 3. If you go clockwise you’ll get a glimpse of it while hiking. I did it in sneakers but wouldn’t have minded my boots, especially when descending down the slippery rocks.

nice walk and not too difficult except that we were in the sun so do not go at the hottest hours

Trail has changed somewhat. Don't follow the trail map as shown on All Trails or you'll go through 2 I'm of overgrown brush. Look out for any yellow X's and avoid that route. Follow the yellow trail as shown on the map at the start. It looks similar to but it's not the same.

Calanque 1 and 2 are easy. The walk to calanque 3 beach is steep down and up, very loose rocks, scree like but doable in sneakers (didn't pack boots for this trip). Just be careful and take your time. Easily round trip 4 hours Inc a 45 min break for lunch and beach

very nice walk pretty easy with nice panorama on the low gorges of the verdon.
