The Calanque d'En Vau is a magnificent cove located in the Bouches-du-Rhône, in the south of France. It is famous for its turquoise waters, its spectacular cliffs and its wild and preserved atmosphere.
The Calanque d'En Vau is accessible on foot from Cassis or from the Route des Crêtes. The hike from Cassis is the most popular, but it is quite demanding, with a walking time of around 2 hours round trip. The hike offers stunning views of the sea and the cliffs, and will eventually lead you to the pebble beach of Calanque d'En Vau.
The beach of the Calanque d'En Vau is surrounded by steep cliffs, which gives it a particularly isolated and preserved atmosphere. The water is crystal clear and ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The surrounding cliffs are also popular for rock climbing.
The Calanque d'En Vau is a popular destination for visitors to the region, but it is also protected and preserved by the Calanques National Park. It is important to respect the surrounding nature and leave no trace of its passage to preserve the beauty and integrity of this exceptional site.
