Kayaking to calanque d'En-Vau

The calanque d'En-Vau is the most spectacular beaches and views of one Cassis. This is one of the worlds most beautiful beaches. The water is so clear it's almost impossible to tell the depth.  It's also the home of a few wild boars who sometimes swim among the tourists and lay down on the beach (don't feed them).

 Here's no place selling food or drinks anywhere near the Calanques, so bring some food and lots of water!

To get there, you can rent a kayak! Paddling from Port-Pin to Port-Miou, then Port-Miou to En-Vau is undoubtedly one of the best ways of exploring the Calanques National Park. Generally, it will take you  4 hours (1 hour to get to Calanque d'En-Vau, a 2-hour break, and 1 hour to return to Cassis). 

Although mots of kayakers choose to end their journey at Calanque d'En-Vau, more seasoned paddlers can continue their way to Grotte de l'Oule, 30 minutes away. Tucked in a rocky crevice and lit only by the sun's rays penetrating the fault, this little cave is a genuine jewel, which you can discover by entering the bottleneck between two waves.

You can get to the beach via the road 559, from Marseille to Cassis. In front of Carpiagne military camp, take the way that goes above the forêt de la Gardiole and keep going until you reach the parking lot. This paths goes down though the hill( that feels like going through a gorge) and eventually finishes on the sea.
