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.

Very good day

Nice walk, not too long, the arrival at the beach in the middle of course is nice. The return climbs a little. It is better to do it in the morning because the circuit is in the sun and the beach is not very big. We had a pretty hot water at the beach!

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.

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

This is an amazing hike with 270 views of the ocean side and all of the mountains around you. You have to park your car half of my mile away from the trail head and then hike up the road to where the trail head starts almost 5 minutes after the well on the side of the road. You would follow the path there is a red blaze that would take you up to the ranch and then over all of the ridge all of mountain tops to the ends of the Reds chain. The path is pretty narrow and. Lined up with whole holy bushes and rosemary bushes so you would probably scrape your legs if you don’t wear long socks or leggings. After you get to the final rinse there is a steep ledge so please be careful turning around. There is a really steep Avenue taking you down and it’s quite full of from bowl so watch your step. You get to the seaside and you be on the sandy beach in no time. So take a swim in the amazing blue water and then head back to the road cutting through different roads in fact until you get back to the trail head and then it starts going down where are you parked your car. Highly recommended. The diversity of plants and flowers and bushes and insects is amazing well worth it!!

Did it clockwise (that direction is not recommended - intense downhill sector makes it unenjoyable). Same downhill sector requires very light rock climbing moves (if you don't have some arm strength and am comfortable with a little height, I'd discourage this path!). Other tidbits - very windy, so a windbreaker is a must. Not much shade, so bring sunscreen and more-than-usual water. Views are stellar!

Amazing views and a great little beach once you reach the calanque. Not much path, someone was kind enough to mark a good route with paint along the rock but you’ll definitely want solid shoes (this was an impromptu hike at the end of a eurotrip, my converse were not ideal).

Beautiful views over Marseille, loved it! Hiked in early August 2018.

Amazing views!

Much harder than it seems. The climb/descent between port pin and port d’en vau is really hard. Bring a lot of water.

Well traveled but the crowd thins out a bit after the first bay. The views are worth it!
